    Put the pan in the freezer so the wax hardens. You should be able to "flip" it off with a spoon or spatula once it's frozen.

    I agree with Gk, freeze and it will come off in pieces/chunks.

    Warm the saucepan slightly, then use paper towel to wipe as much of the wax from the inside as possible. Then as others have said, place the pan in the freezer and when it's frozen, you can pop out the very last bit of wax, then wash with very hot soapy water to reuse the pan in whatever way you wish.

    Hi Masheille. Put the sauce pan in your freezer and wait until it's frozen (overnight is best). Remove it from the freezer. It should be easy to remove the wax. If it's difficult to remove, set the pan down in warm water to loosen it up. Good luck Masheille. Stay healthy and well.

    You can warm it first to liquify the wax and pour as much as you can out into a disposable container (like a yogurt container). Repeat the process until you have just a light coating in the pan. Let it cool and then pop it outside if it's cold, or in the freezer. If your freezer is full, fill the pan with ice. You will be able to see the solid wax when it gets cold, and scrape it out. A good scrubbing with hot, soapy water and you should be good to go. Good luck and stay safe!

    Try placing it in the freezer overnight so the wax freezes. Take it out the next morning, it should be easy to remove. If not slightly warm the bottom of the pan just enough to barely warm the wax, then remove. Stay well

    Try pouring hot water into the pan and dumping into grass?

    Hi Marsheille, I have cleaned these pots at home by heating them up on the stove, pouring out the residual wax into the garbage, or into a container for reusing. Then using gloves, use paper towels to wipe as much of the wax out of the pot as you can, once you have removed as much wax as you can wash the pot with dishwashing soap and rinse

    I'd soak with hot water and a tablespoon or two of dish detergent. Then rinse and scrub with a sponge, it should come off.
