How to remove/clean candle wax splatters on the wall?

Answered
My wife loves to use the candle warming device and we have it all over the house. I dont have any problem with it, except that sometimes when you move furnitures and hit the tables where it is sitting, wax comes splattering on the wall.
Any idea on how to get rid of it? I tried scrapping the wax off, but won't come clean, the wax, especially if colored still shows and I just can't stand it. HELP!

    I found a product called Weiman Wax Away. It is candle wax remover. I put a bit on a cloth and rub. Comes right off. It works on furniture, carpet, and fabric.

    Sometimes it works to hold ice cubes to it, then when cold, shatter it by hitting it with a hard object. Vacuum it away or otherwise clean it.

    Hairdryer and a rag.

    Icing up the wax with an ice cube usually helps me clean wax off

    HI Shoshana,
    Thank you very much. I can’t stand to see it especially a pink stain on my light grey wall. Will try it soon.

    use a clothing iron and a paper towel. Place the paper towel over the wax and then iron with a hot iron (no steam). The paper towel will absorb the wax. Discard the paper towel.
