Right on to the existing wax. I'm not sure people remove the wax before treating. Barbour cautions about washing machines, etc. that would entirely strip the wax.

After about 18 hours hanging, it looks pretty even, although it did not when I originally applied.

I'll definitely have to go back and reheat a handful of wax buildups, but it came out nice.

When I rewaxed mine, I didn't remove any of the old wax. Also, when I wanted to make the finish look a little bit more smooth, I put my coat inside two pillow cases (just doubled it up) and put in on medium in the drier for 15 minutes. Came out way more smooth and finished, as the heat helped even out all the wax. I'd recommend giving that a try. For sure no washing machine, that will ruin it.

thanks man ill try and do the same with my barbour norton sons coat. i left it in my car and my wax melted unevenly which gives it an uneven tortoise effect. ill send it to barbour if it doesnt work out. hasnt been worn and already needs to be rewaxed!

I understand the satisfaction of DIY but Barbour only charges $35 + $10 shipping for reproofing.
Factor in $20 or so for a tin of Thornproof dressing, no way would I want to deal with that mess in my house.
