Edit: after reading that cosmetic grade wax will probably have contaminants. I just bought wax on E-bay! I have become a huge E-bay fan.



Edit: the Stakich came in yesterday, the packaging 100% bees wax. I've used it once already, looks great!

Over the Christmas break I bought a 12-inch skillet at a local thrift store--not vintage, just a recent Lodge, but it was $7 instead of $20, so I'm happy. I'll be trying the bees wax on it after just a bit more scrubbing. OTOH, I dug my grandmother's 10-inch Griswold out of the shed on the family farm this fall, that one is definitely vintage, and it will get the treatment, too.

So if you are using beeswax to season CI...you are doing it the same as before with an oil on the initial coat over raw iron? Apply it and then cook it? If it is an already seasoned pan, you are just wiping it down with a coat of bees wax. Just got some from a local bee keeper. Doug

T really clean those old C.I. skillets and such throw them in the camp fire coals and fish them out the next morning...clean-up like new!
