I used several layers of cheesecloth to strain the beeswax through. I put a rubber band around the cheesecloth and pot to hold the cheesecloth in place. I broke the beeswax into small pieces and let it melt , then strained it in small amounts , that makes it easier to work with.
After it was strained into the pot , I put this pot back over the boiling water and let it melt again.
I then poured it into a jar , this is the easiest way to store the beeswax. When I need more beeswax I can melt it down by boiling a pot of water , remove from heat and setting the jar down in the water. Be sure to remove lid and make sure the water level is below the opening to jar.
