A former state bee man told us in a bee meeting, 1 lb. of lye in 10 gallon of water, boil for 20 minutes. Be prepared to re-paint.

Will have a hard time finding lye if there are any meth cookers around, they use it in the meth making process.

Stay out of the fumes.

Also, remove as much wax as possible prior to boiling and rinse the objects off good after boiling.
