I've heard you can rub the foundation with a wax bar to get the wax back up in the edges. I've also heard to reflow the wax after rubbing in the oven. You could dip them but that seems difficult at best...

For those using plastic foundation, what's your preferred method?

I started with plastic. Figured I had enough opportunities to screw up; I didn't need to damage foundation also.

I saw the plastic as more durable, although, as I said, I just wanted to make sure I didn't damage anything my first year. The one thing I have noticed is that the girls seem to like a nice spray of 1:1 syrup all across the foundation. I just added more supers and sprayed those with syrup and HBH to see if they'd move up easily.

I'll check them Saturday if it's not raining. Once the spigot got turned on here it seems to be difficult to turn it off.
