How to Remove Candle Wax

My wonderful husband recently spilled candle wax all over our kitchen counter top and tile floor. It was not a fun mess to clean up, but here are some tips on how to remove that awful wax mess.

– Take a blow drier and heat up the wax, then wipe away with a rag. Use a mixture of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water to remove the remaining residue.

– You can also take ice cubes and rub them on the wax until hard. Then gently scrap away with anything with a flat edge (butter knife, credit card, spatula, etc)

There are also some easy ways to remove wax from cloth. Here are a couple of tips here:

– First you will want to remove the wax by scraping it off, as much as you can at least.

– Place a flat paper bag or cloth over the stain.

– Iron the stain through the paper bag, and the stain should then iron on to it. Spray with a stain remover and place in the washing machine.


My number one tip would be to not spill wax!! It is very messy and time consuming to clean up, but at least there are ways to do it.
