BEES WAX LUBRICATING COMPOUND BY LUNDMARK

Beeswax Lubricating Compound
Have you all ever used this stuff?  I just discovered it the other day at a local hardware store (mom and pop type store, not the big box type).

I used it on some wood screws and they screwed into the wood perfectly without even drilling a pilot hole first.  I'm going to try it next on a drawer on a piece of furniture that is constantly sticking.  It looks like it has a long list of uses, and I'm looking forward to trying them out.  I like that it's all 100% natural, no chemicals, nothing that will hurt you or the environment. If you can find some, you should try it, it's pretty neat.

It would be even neater if we could sometime get this from our own hives!

We've used this and it's great stuff. Nice find and great all natural solution or alternative to chemicals.

I was just looking online for something to fix a stuck drawer. I have your blog on my list of favorites and saw this posting. Thank you, I'm off to find some of this. It's a sign, hahaha. - carrie

I have always used a regular bar of soap as a lubricant when using wood screws. cheap and always around.

Interesting, who knew! When I was growing up we used bar soap on a stuck drawer. Now we have great hardware that makes drawer slide nicely. I will have to look for some of this.

Glad to know others have discovered it. Sure it's just bees wax but it's natural and that's always a good thing. Thanks for stopping by!

That's so cool! I hope 2013 to be the year of our beehive. Can't wait. I'll have to read up on to some healing salve recipes. Sounds great!! Thank you!

Thanks for having us as a favorite. That humbles me that someone things of these rambling words as a favorite. Yes we found it at a hardware store. Good luck!!

What a cool use for it. I love that something natural has SO many uses. Almost like that's what it's here for huh? Waiting for us to discover how else to use it! Too neat.

Now that's a great idea too! Thank you for that idea!

1st Man said...

Definitely look for it. It's nice to have on hand and discover new uses for it, ha. You never know when you might need it, ha.

Great for waterproofing shoes - rub it all over your canvas/fabric shoes, then "melt" it into the fabric with a hairdryer!
