Early this morning before the kids woke up, Hubs and I decided we’d color our grays. After doing his hair I decided to work on mine in the bathroom leisurely. Everything was going okay till I tried to move a strand of hair away from my nose and in the process banged my elbow on the Scentsy warmer plugged into the wall socket, and yes, it happened. The hot scentsy wax flew out of the warmer

and splattered all over my white ceramic sink bowl.

Seemingly looking as if not a spot was spared!

My mind went on overdrive.

All the questions ran through my mind.

How to remove Scentsy wax?

How to get Scentsy wax off the wall?

How to clean wax off outside the Scentsy warmer?

I’m sure you can now picture just how bad my Scentsy wax warmer spill was!

I spent some time googling my concerns.

Needless to say, the internet gave me gazillion suggestions and yes, I tried practically everything.

But only one worked wonders when I gave it a try.

How to remove Scentsy wax?

The next time Scentsy wax spills onto your countertop, floor, or wall, don’t freak out.

Just do what I did!

All you need is your hairdryer and some paper napkins/towels to get to work.

You read right!

No cleaning solutions are needed.

Just a plain ol’ hairdryer and paper napkins / paper towels.

Switch on your hairdryer to the maximum heat and allow it to blow over the dried wax area.

The wax will begin to melt in just a few seconds.

As it melts away, wipe up the wet wax with your paper napkin.

(The last thing you want is to have wet wax running into a sink drain, only to clog the same up later!)

Work patiently and soon you will have your once wax-splattered surface looking as good as new.



This is also how to clean wax off outside of a Scentsy warmer too!

You can say goodbye to those days of scraping off hardened wax with a butter knife!

(Yes, speaking from experience here!)

It helps to remember these easy hacks especially when you have a day packed with activity!

Have you ever had any Scentsy or candle wax accidents? What did you do to clean up the mess?

That being said, have you checked out the other hacks that have saved me a lot of stress and grief?

Who knew those rubber bands lying around could be used for more purposes than one?

These really are some of life’s best rubberband hacks!

Oh and those dolls?

The countless number of times your daughter has run to you complaining her doll’s hair is too knotted?

Well, no more!

    Haha! I learned this by accident. When I was in the army, there was an army wife that was selling them. I wanted one in particular that was no longer sold and she had her own she would give me but it had wax on it. Her HUSBAND was the one who said to try a hairdryer, so we did and it was THE BEST hack ever! Mind blown. Sometimes men amaze me and this was that one time. Lol
