What are they coating apples with these days???

I bought a bag of apples the other day, and I don't know what they coated these babies with, but it practically takes a paint scraper to get it off!

It feels tacky, oily, and waxy all at the same time. Washing - even with Dawn dish soap - does NOT even come close to taking it off. I've had to hang a piece of flour sack cloth next to the apples and use it to sort of scrub this stuff off.

It's weird . . .
