Re: Wax Processing questions
I took my bur comb, all nasty and black with a bunch of larvae in it (we are talking nasty here more bees and propilis than wax) in a big wok, added a gallon of water, tbl. of vinegar, boiled rapidly. I then dump it into a pan through a nylon that was stretched over the pan. Let cool. When it cools the wax is the pretest white over the top of the water that you would believe. As you melt it the second time the vinegar smell melts off. Since it is boiling in the water the fire is not an issue that I am aware of.
