How to remove candle wax

Melted candle wax can be very stubborn as I found out recently. One of our clients had some lovely scented candles that melt fragrant wax. While cleaning I accidentally knocked it over. The wax immediately hardened all over the wall and countertop!!!!

Here’s a tip on how to remove that candle wax and clean it up completely

To remove wax from wood (and other surfaces), heat an iron and cut a piece of brown parcel paper and put the soft side onto the wood. Place three sheets of paper towel on top of the parcel paper and take the hot iron and just tickle it on to the paper, hardly touching it so as not to spoil the wood – don’t press hard! You will see the wax has been absorbed by the parcel paper.
