Blackie's Wax-B-Gone is economical and effective in removing wax, etc. from traps. It is a liquid that mixes with water and is faster, easier and safer than using lye or Sani-Flush. Wax-B-Gone cleans traps thoroughly, including all cracks, creases, coils and crevices. One quart of Wax-B-Gone solution should clean 4-6 dozen 1 1/2 coil spring traps -- depending on the condition of the traps.
Instructions for Use:
Use 1 quart of Wax-B-Gone per 2 1/2 gallons of water. Bring water to a simmer. DO NOT BOIL. Immerse traps and cover totally. When wax floats to the surface, skimming is recommended to prevent wax from re-depositing on traps upon lifting them out. Trap soak time depends on traps' condition. 5 - 10 minutes should work. Immediately upon lift out, a hot water rinse (hot tap water is fine) finishes the job.
Rubber gloves and safety glasses are recommended when using this product. Do not use on aluminum or soft metals/alloys. Do not freeze. Keep out of reach of children.
