Just read the article on cleaning ducks with wax. I have been using this method for over 30 years and love it. In the directions in the article they say to melt wax in a large pot. There is no mention of first filling the pot with a number of inches of water and bringing to a boil. Once boiling, add the wax. Melting just wax with no water under it can be dangerous. If the wax gets to hot it will burp(splatter) and can severely burn anyone nearby. In the early years many learned this the hard way. Otherwise great article.
