How do I get wax off my bureau?

Unique Creations By AnitaNan W.Karen


I blew out a tealight that was lighting a wax melt. Our electric was out and.... the melt blew all over the top of my bureau.... I used a credit card and it took some off but it looks all spotty and is sticky .....

    Hi, CJ!

    Depending on the finish on the bureau, you may be able to use a hairdryer to melt the remaining wax, then soak it up with a paper towel. Start with the hairdryer on low just in case it melts or mars the finish on the bureau. I hope this helps!

    Light towel or drying kitchen towel on dresser top. Iron it on steam, swipe off quickly, use tongue Oil like Liquid wood to clean to a gleam.

    Use a hairdryer to soften then wipe it away.
