What do you use for wax removal, or do you even bother removing old wax?

I'll boil my traps then let the water cool. All of the wax will be floating on top and can be skimmed off.

I always preboil my traps to remove dirt, grime and old wax of what will come off. Not all will come off and no big deal with me. I have found no faults with it. The old smells are killed off in the boilings. Preboil, dyeing and then wax. All is good.

Al thought i never wax because of my different traps that I use, Richard is spot on with his comment.
