During lunch break, I went to a local Hunter's shop and bought a can of Barbour's Thornproof Dressing.
Later at home, I was ready to start:
First you need to clean your jacket with a brush. If it's dirty, use a sponge and cold water.
After that, you need to dry your jacket (my jacket wasn't dirty so I started right away).
How to re-wax:
Put the can in a pot or pan, filled with water (up to 3/4 of the can's hight) and heat up carefully. Don't allow the water to cook!
If the wax is liquid, rub (! Don't only paint!) it into the garment using a sponge or some other cloth.
Clean off remaining wax with another sponge.
Dry the jacket with a hairdryer (this will melt the wax and put it deeper in the garment),
Rub again to give the jacket a "factory finish".
Hang it dry over night.
Always remember: The re-waxed jacket will bleed some wax.
Try for yourself and have fun!
