    Wood Surfaces & Floors: To remove candle wax spills from wooden furniture or any type of wood surface, the first job is to soften the wax with a hairdryer set to medium heat. When the wax starts to melt wipe it off with a soft cloth. Then wipe the area with a mild vinegar solution and polish as normal.

    Painted Walls: To remove wax from a painted wall or similar surface. First melt the wax with a hairdryer and wipe away the excess.

    There may be a greasy mark left. You can remove this by wiping with a weak vinegar solution.
