Bottle wax allows you to create a moisture resistant seal over your wine or beer bottles. The wax is food grade so there is no risk of contaminating your product. We recommend that you use a can to heat the wax instead of one of your pots for a much easier clean up. You may dip the bottle in the wax or use a spoon/measuring cup. 1 lb. Bag contains enough beads to seal approximately 60 bottles.
