How to Remove Wax from a Table

Updated on June 26, 2012

The other day I accidentally bumped the pretty candle I had on my living room coffee table, and wax spilled ALL over the place. I let it dry and then tried scraping it off, but that left an even bigger mess, and wasn't helping the dilemma.

My dear mother made a few suggestions. She suggested I try to either freeze it or melt it. I had heard of melting it before, but I wasn't willing to risk it because my current hairdryer has been making some pretty terrible noises lately. (I need a new one so bad!!!) So I decided to test the freeze method.

All you do is take a Ziploc bag and fill it with icecubes. Make sure you double-bag it. Mine leaked and left water marks on the table. (I'll leave that experience for a different hub) Then you let it sit until there are cracks on the wax and it's hardened. Then you just chip off the wax in big chunks!
