esmetutu Posted April 1, 2010 Report Share Posted April 1, 2010 I'm having major problems washing the soy wax out of my "pour pots". The leftover wax got gummy, sticky and gluey when I rinsed the pots with very hot water. Adding dish detergent barely helped. Even the dishwasher left them with a residue. Not to mention it was hard to get off my hands. Is this due to an additive? Melting the wax too many times over? Bad wax? More info below:I've been using EZ Soy wax for about 5 years. I use glass measuring cups to mix the wax, color, and FO. When I'm done pouring, I wipe the wax from the measuring cups out pretty well with paper towels. Usually there is just a light residue left. Then I'll wash them by hand with really hot water and a little dish soap. I have never had a problem getting them clean very easily until now.I've recently begun using a Presto Pot(no spigot). There's always some wax left in it that gets heated and reheated. This last time I made some candles, wiped out the containers and I went to wash them only to be left with a sticky mess! (see above)Any ideas? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
