Removing candle wax can be easy if you now how to remove it properly. Spilling candle wax happens and it can be a very frustrating experience trying to remove it if you don't know how. Here are helpful tips on removing candle wax from other candle burners. Regardless of the type of candle wax it is, you will surely find a solution below.
Removing candle wax from clothing, rugs, and other soft surfaces,
apply ice cube or ice pack to the wax. This will harden it and make
it more brittle.
Then gently scrape off as much wax as you can. Don't use anything too sharp. A credit card, wooden stick, or non-serrated knife usually will work well for this purpose.
Next, lay a paper bag (or several of layers of paper towels) over the wax. Place a paper bag under the fabric too.
Gently iron over the top paper. (Set your iron on medium to high, depending on the fabric.) The paper will absorb the wax. Repeat this process with a clean paper bag until all the wax has been removed.
Throw the paper bags in the trash once the wax residue has cooled.
If your carpeting is not nailed down and is fairly thin, follow the
steps outlined above.
If you have wall-to-wall carpeting, follow the steps outline above on removing candle wax from fabrics and other soft surfaces except you will not be able to place a paper bag under the fabric. However, you still should be able to remove the wax. It just might take longer.
removing candle wax on counter tops, floors, and other smooth hard durable surfaces, let it cool then scrape it up. OR heat the wax with a hair dryer until melted, then wipe up.
Heat the wax with a hair dryer to soften it. Blot up as much wax as you can with paper towels, then rub with a cloth soaked in a solution of half white distilled vinegar and half water. Wipe clean with a soft, absorbent cloth.
Here is another idea a customer has used, place a old terrycloth towel over the wax, then ran a hot iron over the towel until the wax was absorbed into the towel, and away from the clothes.
