How we clean the beeswax before we render it for projects

Fall has arrived!  I’m loving today…enjoying the cool breeze through the windows, doing a little cleaning, baking Oatmeal Craisin White Chocolate Chip Cookies  and whipping up a batch of Creamy Butternut Squash soup (recipes coming soon!)  Ed cleaned up the garden, let our chickens roam around there a while eating bugs and tomatoes, and then he set out the honey coated beeswax we had after our honey extraction a couple of weeks ago.  To clean the honey off the wax, we just set it out and let the bees do the work!
