Your muddler is a natural wood product and therefore needs occasional care. Brothers Muddlers developed this hand made muddler wax to be easy to apply, long lasting, and food safe. It is made from a custom blend of organic beeswax and food safe mineral oil designed to keep your muddler in top shape for years.Simply apply a small amount to your muddler, coating entirely, and leave to dry. For the home enthusiast, an application should last several months. For the hard working muddler, apply every other week or when you start to notice the muddler dry and lighten in color. This 2oz tin should last 10-15 applications. A little goes a long way.
