I'd be grateful for any recommendations on the best way to, and products to use, for re-waterproofing winter canvas rugs.

There is a product on the market that you paint onto the canvas, sorry can't remember the name. Your local saddlery should have it.

There is one called "Proof Cote", don't know what it is like as I have not used it. But you paint that one on and it looks easy.

Dry Cote or Rug Seal, both at Horseland

Have to say have tried Rug Seal - cost a bit and followed instructions to the letter - found it useless!!

We use a spray (I can't remember the name, sorry) that is used for waterproofing canvas tents. It works. You can buy it from any camping supplies store, or possibly a hardware store. Possibly cheaper than buying similar product from a horsie store.

Another tip is to rub a candle along any seams,as they often leak,and the wax will seal them:)

I've used "Jay eel seal", I think that's what it's called , made by joseph liddy. Very effective going on to last another winter without having to reproof.

I use Dry Seal on my rugs - it is expensive but then most waterproofing agents are. You have to brush it on on a hot day as its waxy like and needs the warmth to soak in. I found it to be ok.
