When you get a candle wax drip on your wood furniture, first harden the wax by rubbing an ice cube wrapped in plastic over the spill. Then, scrape the hardened wax off with a nonstick spatula or an expired credit card.
Good suggestion..... tried it on dinning table, used credit card. Used spray on furniture polish afterwards, no trace of the wax.
Sounds stupid. Why not heat the wax with a controlable heat gun and wipe it off with vinegar or amonia?
Excellent suggestion. Worked like a dream!
Great tip! It worked well.
Tip doesn't work as well as one would think. The best tip is to use a product called Goo Gone. This worked perfect and was done with very little effort.
My problem is that the citronella wax has seeped into the wood; there's nothing to scrape off the surface. Any ideas?
