A Zero Waste Glass Of Wax To Seal All Things Bamboo
Enriched Beeswax and Carnauba Wax Specially Formulated To Seal All Things Bamboo
Some of our bamboo accessories are designed for use in the bath and shower like our soap dishes, these dishes feature built-in draining grooves to prevent water damage. If your bathroom tends to stay steamy, you may want to wipe your bamboo soap dish down with a dry microfiber cloth after each use. Other products in our bamboo line are not sealed to be directly exposed to water like our Bamboo Makeup Pads Holder, spoons and Tooth brushes. You can keep these pieces looking like new with regular dusting and occasionally wiping them down with slightly dampened cloth. Seal It Up: If you want to waterproof your bamboo pieces, use our Bamboo Waterproof Wax to seal it up.
【Natural Ingredients】 Made from natural beeswax & Carnauba Wax. The natural waxes helps bamboo providing nourishment, help keep the wood moisturized and help prevent it from drying out and cracking.
Packaging: Package in a Kraft box with clay desistentant for moisture protection during shipping.
INSTRUCTIONS: Prep your space by covering surfaces with Kraft paper or a large, clean cloth like an old tablecloth. Clean your bamboo before waterproofing.
Caution must be taken in the melting process because Bamboo Waterproof Wax contains ingredients that are flammable. Never leave the mixture unattended during the melting process. Be careful with the hot wax. Don’t spill it on yourself. It’ll probably hurt, and result in burns. Also, because the beeswax is yellow/orange, it will slightly change the color of your Bamboo item, most noticeably on light color wood like oak.
Create a double boiler to melt the Bamboo Waterproof Wax by filling a saucepan with water, bringing it to a boil on the stove-top, then resting the Bamboo Waterproof Wax on top of the pan keep it from touching the bottom of the pan, otherwise it could crack. The space between the pan and the bowl will trap the heat needed to melt the Bamboo Waterproof Wax above and heat over medium-low heat until the Bamboo Waterproof Wax is completely melted. Make sure that the water does not get into the jar. Let the jar sit in the hot water until the wax has softened. Hold the jar in one hand and use a butter knife to loosen the wax. Do not let Bamboo Waterproof Wax exceed 80°C
Carefully wear heat safe gloves and take your melted Bamboo Waterproof Wax out of the pot making sure that the water does not get into the jar, and start brushing it onto your bamboo in a thin layer. You can keep your Bamboo Waterproof Wax in the pot of warm water to help keep it warm, and if it cools down too much before you’re finished just heat it up again. Allow 24~48 hours for wax to cure before doing the next step.
Turn your hairdryer on the highest heat setting and hold it an inch or two from the bamboo. It may take a couple of minutes after you first turn it on to warm up, but the wax should start to melt, and then soak into the bamboo. Continue heating the whole bamboo until all of the wax is melted. Your bamboo should now be waterproof!
Our Bamboo Waterproof Wax is not FDA Compliant and it is not recommended for food-contact surfaces. We recommend using Bamboo Waterproof Wax within two years of purchase.
