How do I remove paraffin from painted paneling?


My husband knocked over my scented melt warmer. The paraffin splattered on my wall. The wall is painted paneling. How do I remove the paraffin without damaging the paint job? Or is it possible to remove without damage?

    Scrape as much off as you can. If there is a residue left, cover with paper towels, and low heat from the iron will pull the wax into the paper towels.

    If paper towels don’t work use a white absorbent cloth. Just move the iron to a clean part of the material. This should help.

    Try a blow dryer on hot or warm setting. Then blog off the parafin with a paper towel. Im

    sure it will all come off but it might help.
