How do I get wax off walls?

Wax Removal from Painted Wall or Wallpaper

To remove wax on a painted wall or from wallpaper, wait until the wax gets cold. Pick as much as you can off with your fingers, plastic credit card, etc. Then, heat an iron on low temperature and place a tissue against the wax and gently heat the wax. It will absorb into the tissue. Repeat with numerous tissues until the wax is gone.

Makes complete sense. I have had a spot of wax on my wall for over a year now. How interestering that the solution is common sense (melting the wax) and an absorbant piece of material. I so enjoy this site. Keep up the good work.
