  • Take care that the mixture is not boiled too much as that may destroy the required consistency and make the mixture hard.
  • Let it cool for some time and store it in air tight container. I used it immediately 😀

PS: Do not heat the wax directly over stove if you want to reuse it. Instead boil water in a container and keep wax bottle in the hot water.
