I wax all my threads, the dmc flower, six strand and sewing. I havent tried 
silk yet. If you are using it for clothing, I find it is easier to stitch, 
and since it gets washed in the machine, the beeswax comes out easily. It 
doesnt even stay on the thread while I stitch, I sometimes rewax the thread a 
couple times. Maybe it is wrong, but the pieces i make this way have lasted 
at least six years, and many machine washings.
