HOW TO USE Here are a few uses we know about. Use the wax to ease drawer runners, curtain tracks and zips. It will fill scratches or worm holes in wood. YOu can use it to wax thread and string. The wax melts at 65 degrees C. It may develop a “bloom” if kept at low temperatures – this will rub off with a cloth, or if stored in a warm place.
Beeswax is produced as a liquid by young bees, which secrete wax from special glands. On contact with air, the wax hardens to form small scales. Naturally white, the wax is coloured by pigments in the pollen which bees collect. About one million wax scales make 1 kg of wax.
