Wax

Removing wax from carpets & upholstery

To remove wax dripping from carpets or upholstery, apply an ice cube or ice pack to the wax.

This will make the wax brittle, allowing you to scrape off what you can with a blunt object.

Removing wax from surfaces

Apply vegetable, sunflower or olive oil to a cloth or a piece of kitchen towel and then simply wipe away.

If you have a pile of wax to remove then just pour some oil over the wax; this will soften it and allow you to remove it easier.

Glycerine

To remove dried wax drippings from candlesticks:

1.  Peel off as much wax as possible,

2.  Dampen a cotton wool ball with glycerine, and

3.  Rub the cotton wool ball over the wax drippings until clean.
