The Benefits of Beeswax

beeswaxBeeswax is a natural wax produced by honey bees during the construction of their honeycombs. It also has many uses around our homes. It can be used as a lubricant in furniture joints, or to smooth the movement of doors and windows. By coating hand tools, cast iron pieces and shovels, you prevent them from rusting out. You can also prevent splintering wood by coating nails and screws with beeswax. Rubbing it on slides keeps drawers and sliding glass doors from sticking. Beeswax prohibits bronze items from getting tarnished, and keeps granite countertops shiny while helping to prevent staining. There are dozens of other benefits that you get from beeswax. Swing by our hardware department on your next visit for some beeswax, and a pamphlet that conveys many more benefits that beeswax provides.
