      HI Paula, I have never heard of it. Don't think it's in oz yet, some things take 20-30 years to get here. Getting back to the wax, have you tried putting it into the freezer for a while then seeing if the wax crumbles?

    use groc bags....cup the bags apart and lay the doily between layers of the paper and iron usung a hot iron. Keep moving the doily to a different sport every few minutes. The wax should melt and the paper will soak up the wax. Hope this helps!

      Thank you Darlene. I will first freeze it then use the paper bag idea.

    Before you do the brown paper/paper towel method with the iron . . . Save yourself some time and a tree. If there are any 'big chunks' on them throw them in the freezer. Once frozen, you should be able to 'pick off' a good amount of those big chunks and possibly prevent it from 'running' more when you start the melting method.

      Thank you Wendy. Freezing it first and getting as much off as You can and then using paper bag does make a lot of Sentsy😂.
