Household Hint: Wax Clean Up

Today I was a bit clumsy and knocked over a candle.  The hot wax spilled across the table.  My first reaction was to wipe up the mess, but instead I let it cool. Once hard, I used a plastic paint scraper to easily remove it from the table.  A little funiture polish and no signs it ever happened.


  1. Sue,
    The other way to remove wax, especially from a carpet, is to use an iron with a newspaper or paper towel. You press the paper towel on the wax and iron it out.

  2. Francois, what a great idea. I have to put that into my bag of tricks. Sue
