Ever since THOSE waxed skinnies sold out Soph and I have been searching for the perfect alternative. That was until we had a “why don’t we just do it ourselves?!” moment.

How to: DIY Waxed Denim

You will need:
Heavy Duty Fabric Wax – otherwise known as Otter Wax ($10 bucks!)
Hair dryer
Jeans

1. Lay your denim on a flat work surface. Starting from the bottom of your jeans, rub the wax in even strokes covering the entire surface.

2. Use your hairdryer to soften wax and smooth out with your fingers to create an even surface and create a waterproofing seal.

3. Hang your jeans in a cool-dry place for 24 hours to let the wax set.

Done and done!

  1. I wasted $12 on Otter Wax and this did nothing for my jeans, not even a glimmer of shine. For reference I used a grey pair of skinny denim jeans from Forever 21. You will notice in The Coveted's video she uses an ALREADY waxed pair of jeans that faded in the wash to re-wax them. This does not work on plain jeans, the results are disappointing at best and you can't wash waxed jeans. Hopefully this saves someone time and expenses.

  2. Hi Geri,

    I tried this DIY on my old black jeans and it ended up looks life faded jeans and very waxy instead of shiny and glossy and feels hard like when I bought a new waxed denim. I was wondering if yours feel that way too. or maybe any tips on doing it.

    Please let me know and I can be reach at irawan.riani@gmail.com

  3. Hello, could you please tell me, have you allready washed them? If yes, have you washed them by hand or in a washing maschine?
    And was everything OK? Did the waxed effect change somehow?

    Thank you very much for your answer.
