I use the bleach method. I prefer to use a shallow white bowl so I can see the herl better. When the deep blue of the eye is about gone, the herl is done. I do the eyes one at a time. Leave a little stem and grab that with tongs so you can swish the eye around in the diluted bleach. I may give the wax a try. I looked for it at Kroger, but didn't see it in the canning stuff.
