How to Remove Candle Wax
When you are making candles or even just burning them, it's almost inevitable that you will get wax somewhere you don't want it. Just scraping it off doesn't work. You'll get off the surface wax, but it has, undoubtedly soaked into the fiber of the material. Or you may have gotten it in your hair or on some glass, like the holder.
Don't fret. There are ways of removing wax from almost any surface.
How to Get Candle Wax Out Of
The best way to remove candle wax is with paper and an iron. Place a paper towel or brown grocery bag over the spill and place the heated iron over it. The heat from the iron will melt the wax and cause it to stick to the paper. Be sure not to leave it on for too long, or it could cause a fire.
How to Remove Candle Wax From Glass
If you get wax on your glass candle holder or some other glass, first take a fresh razor blade and carefully scrape off as much as you can. Then submerge the glass in very hot but not boiling water for about a minute. Remove the glass and immediately rub off any remaining wax with a paper towel. Repeat dipping it in the not water if necessary.
