I only started using Beeswax on my thread a couple of years ago, but I read you should run the iron over the thread to melt it in. Where did I read that? Oh yes, in this little booklet called "Fix your Clothes" by Raleigh Briggs which I bought here
After running the thread through the wax a couple of times, she says "Next, run over your thread with a warm iron to melt the wax into the thread. This might seem fussy, but the ironing is important - it removes any waxy residue and creates a strong, tangle-free thread with plenty of glide." I've done it like that ever since.
