Cheese wax prevents cheese from developing mold or bacteria and it keeps moisture in. Simply use a combination of dipping and brushing with a natural boar’s hair brush to apply the melted cheese wax liberally to your block of cheese let it harden, and store at a mild to cool temperature. Cheese treated with cheese wax will store for up to 25 years. It will continue to age, but, it won’t get moldy (even if it does in parts, you can simply cut off that part, and re-wax over it.)
When preparing your cheese blocks for dipping select/cut cheese block sizes that you and your family can easily consume within 3-5 day period in order to avoid it going bad once you’ve cut into it.
Blocks of cheese or cheese wheels (cut into sizable pieces)

A double boiler set up – the pan you choose to melt the cheese wax in will be your designated cheese wax pan as it is near impossible to clean afterwards
