Today I used cheese wax for my first time. I made a hell of a mess after accidentally doing the cheese in the bowl of melted wax. I managed to clean that up, although it wasn't easy. Unfortunately after that cleanup, I then put the equipment with minimal wax residue into the dishwasher. Everything came out red with waxy residue. The dishwasher was on a 70°C pot cycle. I then attempted a dishwasher clean with an 80°C cycle and dishwasher cleaner. Things look much better, but white plastic items are still reddish. I've done another subsequent clean and a slight improvement.
So out of today I have learnt that cheese wax and dishwashers don't play nice together. Hopefully this post may prevent someone else making the same mistake.
Does anyone have a suggestion of what my might work better at getting rid of wax residue?
