How do you keep wax pot clean? - 25-05-06, 05:14 PM

how do you all keep your wax pots clean, we ahve just taken the pot out of the unit and all wax has dripped inside and we are ahving a nightmare cleaning it.

So is there a method for keeping it clean and also do you get crystalisation in your wax if it has been heated too often?

thanks for your help peeps

Hiya,

when i get into a mess with my wax pot i just use the cleaner you can get and lint free pads or a cloth, smells really strong and you'll need a window open when you use it, but the wax comes off effortlessly x

Hi, i use a wax pot cleaner but surgical spirit does a good job to!

(Warm the pot before you clean it, its much easier)

I use Kitchen towel & wax cleaner. I believe that surgical spirit can cause cracks on a wax heater so i wouldn't reccomend it.

Depileve Citri Clean is fab for the job.
It smells of oranges as well so it's not too whiffy

While the wax is still warm, you can use a paper or cloth waxing strip with a bit of oil on to remove any drips. Dried on cold wax will need a bit more elbow grease, or surgical spirit (as suggested above) does the trick too, but I'd only use this on the metal inner chamber.

I keep the heater switched on and pour some wax equipment cleaner into the chamber.

I then throw in a cotton wool pad and let it soak up the liquid. Then I just swirl the pad round the chamber with a wooden spatula, going up the sides and everything until it's clean!

HTH chick!!

P.S. - don't have the pot on too hot, cos the liquid cleaner will start to smoke and evaporate as steam and make you cough a lot!!!! Just keep the heater warm!!!!
sachi hearts this.

Its easier if you do it every day.

Sorry i should have been a bit clearer, as far as im aware its ok to use on the metal container (although i did have an unexplained crack in the middle of mine a few days later) but i have always been taught from college & other waxing training not to use on the exterior of the heater but i suppose this depends on manufactors instructions

I have been using the same wax pot for over a year now, and never had to clean it. I use a wax pot collar that catches any stray wax when waxing, so nothing ever gets on the pot.
