How can I remove wax from a kitchen pot?

Wax Removal from Kitchen Pots

To remove the wax from a kitchen pot, you will need to either heat the wax or freeze it. If you heat it, you should be able to use paper towels to absorb the majority of it. If you freeze it, you should be able to chip out most of it with a plastic spatula. In either case, you may need to repeat the procedure several times. To remove any residue, wash in hot water with a detergent for washing the dishes designed to cut grease.

Best surest way I've found to remove wax from pretty much anything is to pour near boiling water on it. The wax will melt and take itse'lf away. Also works for candle holders filled with old wax. Simply pour very hot water over it or sumberge it in very hot water, wait a few seconds, the wax will melt around the edges and easily slide out.
