How do I get a candle wax drip off of an antique buffet table without scratching it?
One of my candles got overzealous and a few drips of wax got onto my antique walnut buffet table ... sigh. Any ideas how I can get it off without scraping, scratching, or otherwise ruining the wood?
Get a very absorbent old 100% cotton towel and lay it on the wax. Touch a hot iron to the towel where the wax drops are located, The wax will melt and get wicked up by the towel.
I agree with Anne Pettit...this should work wonderfully..good luck!
I've used both the iron method -- already suggested -- and also an ice cube(s). Lay a cloth on the table and add an ice cube(s) on top of it where the wax is. Let it sit there a couple of minutes until the wax hardens/freezes and it should pop right off. Should you use this suggestion -- once the wax is up, make sure the table top is dry and put a small spot of mayonnaise on a dry cloth and rub it on the spot. Again, let it absorb a bit and use a dry cloth to buff up where the mayo was.
