Apple Wax
« on: October 29, 2009, 10:56:34 PM »
Hey all ,  I was just wondering if anyone knows how beeswax could be used to wax apples for storage (and shine) ???   They use carnuba and parrafin wax .  Surely there must be a way to use beeswax , but how ???  Thanks .

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.
