Just how DO you clean a waxed jacket?

    Cheers all,

    My gf recently acquired a waxed cotton jacket with textile originated from a certain "British Millerain Co." We were both taken aback by the cleaning instructions, which noted: "SPOT CLEAN DO NOT DRY CLEAN DO NOT BLEACH DO NOT TUMBLE DRY DO NOT IRON." :fu:

    I feel a bit uneasy not to be able to wash it, especially the inner part that is cotton and is close to the skin. I am sure you gentleman have such jackets - how do you clean them? Your expertise is appreciated.

    I don't think my 70's A7 has ever been cleaned, spot or otherwise.
