Why Not Use Aluminum Pots To Melt Beeswax


Beeswax is slightly acid due to a small honey content in the beeswax, which causes
it to react with some metals. If an aluminum pot is used to melt beeswax it causes
the beeswax to have a smokey , dark shadow. This is also true for galvanized metal .
Brass or copper will give the beeswax a green tone. Using stainless steel or enamel
coated pots to melt beeswax does not cause any discoloration. The simplest technique
is to put a stainless steel pot inside a larger pot of water and turn on the heat to
170 F. Purchasing a used stainless steel pot at a Thrift store can be economical and
contribute to a Charity.
