wax blocks 2019

bee, beekeeping, crush and strain, slow cooker, wax,

After crush and strain, I rinsed the wax with warm water.   Crushed wax was melted outdoors in a large thrift store slow cooker.  I used one cup of water and cotton fabric to catch wax impurities.   I set the cooker on high for nearly 2 hours and left everything to cool for another 4 hours.  I repeated this cycle 3 times.  Click on the photo and have a look at the tidy elliptical wax blocks.
