Does anyone know the life expectancy of a waxed dipped bears?
I have heard someone say you are supposed to throw them out after 4 years because of the dust they can hold (I tell my customers to purchase air in a can to clean them) but I have only heard that once and I don't know if it's true...

I agree with Pixie. I am a cleaning lady and I dust my clients candles with a damp cloth. The coating of the bear is made from the same materials. It should be fine. Bye bye!

It does come out dripping and looking like a drowned rat! You have to squeese the wax out and give them a good fluffing after dipping...it's a long process.
If you are ever in GP to visit your Grandmother please stop by to see our bears...we are locatd on main street.

LMAO yeap!! haha :oops: I'm going to the website now.. I'm very interested in these bears because that's a pretty intense process. Is this something that you could put in a room and get a strong scent from?

The bears are quite aromatic, depending on the scent as well, some are stronger than others and when your bear stops smelling you can give him or her a quick blow dry to heat up the wax and the scent and they will last a long time...
Let me know if you have troubles finding them on the website...

HAHAHA You get really used to it. We get hit often and outgoing is about every night now.. when the weather is bad we get hit more! It's not to much fun but it's part of the job I reckon! :wink:

These bears are SOOOO cute! What a great idea and I love that they can be "re-scented" with a hair dryer!! These are such cool gifts!
