    Arrow Formulas for Waterproofing

    WATERPROOFING CANVAS

    3 cups soybean oil (available from grocery or health food store)
    1 1/2 cups turpentine
    Mix ingredients together. Paint on surfaces of tents, awnings, car and boat covers, etc., and let dry. Store in a cool place, out of reach of children and pets. Reapply after a year or two of hard use or outdoor exposure.
    This is great for tents, awnings and camping equipment.

    1/2 ounce of tallow (be careful tallow is flammable - available from meat market)
    Stir gently until well mixed. Cool and bottle. Use a cloth to rub into shoes and boots.
    Method 2: Mix 1 tablespoon silicone oil (available from foundry or foundry supply dealer) into 1 cup of Stoddard solvent (hardware store, drugstore or drycleaning shop). Apply liberally.

    WATERPROOFING CONCRETE

    Mix 1 1/4 pounds ammonium stearate (available from drugstore or chemical supply house) into 4 gallons of hot water and apply two coats with a large paint brush.
