One home remedy/cfude method would be to put a pot of bee'swax in a small 2 cup crockpot or over a candle to keep it liquid and then using a syphon system and air sprayer apply it to the apples.  I would buy another "pneumatic engine clear" as that is exactly what it is and is used for spraying solvents etc onto machinery to clean them.
