Anyone here use Nikwax
waterproofing? Is it good/does it require new coats often/most importantly: DOES IT STINK? (L'il more inside.)

I'm getting into doing my own waxed cotton, which (waxed cotton) rules. Why pay mega$ for Barbour or Driza-Bone when you can wax a $25 barncoat? Beeswax works (I did a pair of hemp boots with it), but beeswax has drawbacks. I have chemical allergies, and if Nikwax has a heavy odor, it's out. (Thanks.)
