It’s possible to obtain shoes with synthetic fabrics with built-in water-resistant properties and sprays that will waterproof any type of gear. However most “ordinary” shoes are not waterproof – and so this old school waterproofing techniques useful to know. In the video, Crazy Russian Hacker shows how you can make your shoes water resistant by using a candle and a blow dryer.

Apply an ample amount of wax to your shoes. Wear gloves while doing this to keep the wax from your hands. Blow-dry your shoes to seal in the wax. The heat from the hair dryer will melt the wax over the shoe material and that’s it! You have now made your shoes water-resistant.

Paraffin wax is the most common wax used in candles and it is a by-product of the crude oil refinement process. However a study conducted in 2009 found out that candles made out of paraffin wax are a cause of pollution of indoor air – and it’s a substance you may prefer not to associate with your clothing. Use other varieties of wax such as beeswax, otter wax or soy wax.

Make sure the materials are clean and dry before applying the wax. If you are concerned about how the wax will affect the appearance of the item, test it on a small and inconspicuous piece of fabric before coating the whole material. In the video, when the candle wax was applied, it created a white coat which altered to color of the shoe but blow drying it will usually get rid of any discoloration the wax causes.

To maintain their performance, re-apply wax every year on your items. Don’t wash your waxed items with other garments. Wash them separately with cold water and mild soap, gently scrubbing areas that need it and let the items air dry.

Wax can be used on many fabrics. This could be extremely helpful in making some of your camping gear water resistant. Note that waxed fabrics will no longer be breathable, as the wax will provide a seal against not only moisture but air.

Ok, here’s the video:
