How to Waterproof a Jacket

Follow along here to learn how to use our products to waterproof your jacket. Our system takes less than 36 hours to make your garment airtight. 

Clean the Jacket

Begin by prepping the jacket. Using the hog-hair brush, go over the jacket. Brush slowly to remove any dirt or dust. 

Then, throw the jacket into the wash. Let it dry completely. 

This step ensures each fibre of your jacket is clean and ready to go! The liquid protector works by binding to these fibres. If there is any residue left on the jacket, the protector won't be able to grab onto the fabric. 

Spray the Jacket

Next, you'll spray the jacket.

For this step, you'll use the Liquiproof LABS Premium Protector that penetrates the fabric of your coat. 

Before spraying the entire jacket all at once, spray a bit on an inconspicuous part of the garment. Let the mist dry. Our liquid protector is clear and should dry invisible. 

When you're satisfied with the dry colour after the test run, it's time to start spraying! 

Evenly spray the Liquiproof LABS Premium Protector onto the jacket. In this step, be careful to spray around buttons, zippers, and pockets. You don't want unwanted droplets coming through!

Brush or Rub the Jacket

After spraying the garment, use a clean brush or microfibre cloth to gently scrub the spray into the jacket. This helps the protector to bind with the fibres and give you the highest-quality protection!

Go ahead and wipe off any spray that landed on buckles, zippers, or patent leather before they dry. 

Repeat the Process

After going over the jacket, wait ten minutes. 

Then, spray the jacket again! Repeat the same spray-and-brush method. By doing this process twice, you're filling in any spots you may have missed the first time. 

When you've sprayed and brushed your jacket twice, let your it dry for twenty-four hours.
