I have some canvas tool bags I wanted to wax and made water resistant and instead of buying some of those expensive wax products I decided to make my own. In the end, I don't think I saved any money... BUT it was a lot of fun and I'll have more satisfaction using it. I looked up many recipes and I choose the easiest one! -well also because it was edible or food safe, I wouldn't have to worry about the cookware. I might regret it but we'll have to see. The recipe I used is: 1 part beeswax and 1 part pure lard. I might reformulate/melt it down again and add more lard and essential oils later on. If you guys/gals have any advice on how to improve this, please let me know- I want to learn. Thanks! BTW, the clean up sucked and was quite the chore but I had to hide the evidence of me playing around in the kitchen. Good thing everything is edible and safe.
