Question Question about DSW and Finis

I have used both of the waxes mentioned above and when using them from new, I find that I can achieve a very thin application layer however, after leaving the tins in the garage for a few months ~ 4-5 months, I find that it's harder to achieve a thin application layer like when the waxes are first opened and used. It's as though the wax has dried up somewhat and not as buttery as it is when new. Solvent evaporation maybe? The waxes are stored in the garage in a cupboard and are subject to the usual temperatures but has anyone else experienced the same behaviour or have any recommendations on how to store the BH waxes?

Don't let them get too hot or cold, garage isn't typically a great place because of this.

The best place to store waxes is in a fridge imo as you have a consistent temperature. I purchased a mini fridge just for my waxes.Some may consider this a little ocd but it works for me.

I asked a similar question about wax storage a while ago. I've since made the decision to keep them indoors now in a box at room temperature.

It does help to soften the wax a little before you use it. So bring it indoors and leave it near a radiator or something for 10 mins.
