You can impregnate a cotton tent very effectively with Canvas & Cotton Protector.
We developed this impregnating agent especially for cotton tents. It is now used not only at our sail and tent cleaning facility, but also by companies that hire out safari tents, army tents, tipi tents, and by retailers of second-hand folding trailers.
- First, clean the tent with lukewarm water and a strong, soft brush. Otherwise, the dirt will become trapped beneath the impregnating agent.
- When the tent cloth is dry, spray it with Canvas & Cotton Protector. Use a plant sprayer to apply the product. You could also use a paint roller or paint brush if desired.
- Ensure the tent cloth is saturated with the impregnating agent. The cloth should be soaking wet.
- It is preferable to spray it on both sides.
- Now allow the tent to dry.
- You can make the tent more watertight by pitching it first. By doing so, you stretch the tent cloth somewhat, which creates minuscule holes.
- Thus, we recommend spraying the tent again while it is under tension.
- Initially, Canvas & Cotton Protector may leave white residue or white marks.
- This is excess impregnating agent. The white residue will disappear within a short time.
