i have some dark wax an i don't know how to make it light
I use a solar wax melter that I built. In it I have a disposable pan for collecting the wax and a disposable pan that is on the slanted part that is in full sun. I cut a D shape cut in the lower section leaving the flat section of the D uncut so that the wax runs over it as it flows into the catch pan. I put a piece of stuffing material in the D shape cut to act as a filter. It only allows the wax and honey to go through it. The upper pan ends up looking really nasty because all of the garbage stays in this pan. The catch pan will end up with honey on the bottom and if it doesn't all melt the first day, it will have layers of honey from each day it is melting. I just wash the honey off of the bottom of the wax and it ends up rather clean. Most of the time I will run this wax back through the solar melter, using a clean pan, to get it even cleaner.
