i would go get some bow string wax, either the natural beeswax or one of the synthetic types. i have never heard of anyone using candle wax, don't think it would hurt it but then again i don't know what else they put in some of the candle waxes either. there may be impurities in it. i'm sure someone will know more about this than i do and offer some advice but i would say just wait and get to a bow shop and buy some designed for your string.

Seconded. Wait for some good stuff. Beeswax works just fine for Dacron strings, which is what I suspect you have if you're shooting a Ragim.

Best option would be to get some proper bowstring wax though.

check and see if your mom will order some online for you. its not very expensive, alot cheaper than replacing the string anyway. good luck.

If your string is Dacron you could use Chap Stick - the original, non colored scented, etc. I've seen bow hunters & Trad shooters use it for their strings, cables & anything else that squeaks or rubs.
If you're end up at WalMart for it though - check the sporting goods section for the real thing.
