Directions:
Preserving and Canning:
1. Fill glasses of jars to within 1/2 inch of top.
2. Clean inside top rim of container to remove any preserves from surface.
3. While contents are hot, cover with 1/8 inch layer of melted paraffin wax.

General Uses:
1. Seal bottles by dipping tops.
2. Rub hot iron over paraffin wax, wrapped in cloth, to keep smooth and bright.
3. Lubricate sticking drawers, windows, doors and zipper fasteners.
4. Rub paraffin wax on snow shovels to aid shoveling wet snow.
