    Here's what you'll need:

    * Cotton sheet (desired size)

    * Beeswax

    * Jojoba oil

    * Parchment paper

    * Towel or ironing board

    * Iron

    Here's what you'll do:

    # Cut 2 sheets of parchment paper larger than the cotton sheet.

    # Place one sheet of parchment on the ironing board or towel. Place the cotton sheet on top.

    # Grate the beeswax and spread out the wax over the entire sheet.

    # Pour some jojoba oil over the sheet, and place the second parchment sheet on top.

    # Once the iron is heated, place it over the parchment and smooth it over the sheet. You will quickly see the wax melt and spread through the cotton sheet. Once the entire sheet is covered in wax, pull away the top parchment.

    # Carefully peel away the cotton sheet. The wax will dry within a minute and will be ready for use!
