    How to clean wax off painted wall?

    Let's just say I got mad and threw a wick candle across the living room and there's shattered glass and splattered wax all over one side of the living room. Purple wax does not look good on beige paint. Any ideas? I hate the fact that the wax is up real high and all over the backboard as well. Too bad I don't have a second person handy to help me with that, it's going to be a pain to remove.

    wax is a bitch- use a paper towel dripped in hot/warm water then wipe them all

    Try using a hair dryer to melt the wax and a paper towel to soak up the melted wax.

    Tried that. It helped a little.

    I was thinking about doing that too. Just need an extension cord for the hair dryer.

    If you have vinyl flooring, don't ever drop candle wax on the floor. In my old house I spilled a red candle in the kitchen, and the stain was permanent!

    Place absorbent paper over the wax and with a hot iron pass over the paper. The wax will melt and be absorbed. Need to change the paper frequently. Finally hot soapy water should remove the rest.

    Works even better with brown paper, like you wrap parcels in

    Melting the wax will only spred it. Use some ice cubs and freeze the wax and then shatter it with something and chip it away.If that does not do it use dry ice even colder

    Melt the wax - mold your pretty ass and post a copy to every ex you have ever had. Rub yourself on the remains till you are hard and ready...

    That works fairly well.

    Cheap vinyl.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Painted wall
    Apply medium heat with a blow dryer and wipe away excess wax as it softens. Remove residue with a solution of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water.

    Scrape off the majority of the wax, then put a cloth over the remainder, followed by some brown paper so you dont burn the paint & use an iron to melt the rest off, it will be absorbed by the cloth

    I use two methods to remove wax....

    First is using a first aid product... a 'cold' spray. Theyre advertised for use as a numbing product, for scrapes, cuts, burns, etc... but they also work great to remove wax or gum from various surfaces. Use the spray on the wax, to freeze it, and you will find that a plastic putty knife will then pop it off the wall pretty easily.

    Second method I use, is a clothes iron, and paper grocery bag. (Grocery bags are thicker than 'small item' bags, usually) Cut a section out of the grocery bag, (large enough to hold and still have room for the iron). Hold it up on the wall, and apply the clothing iron to the paper (use low heat setting, so as not to damage any painted surfaces). This will cause the wax to melt, and 'blot' onto the paper bag scrap. You can rotate the paper to get as much use as possible out of it (I like to cut several pieces, about 9inch square or so).

    Between these two methods, Ive been able to remove wax from walls every time, without harming the paint.
    (these work on carpet as well)


    Now, if this were a tile surface....you could use WD-40 to remove the wax....and then a little dawn dish soap to remove the WD-40. I would NOT use WD-40 on paint, tho, unless absolutely necessary. While it will remove things like permanent marker from a painted wall, it tends to leave a slight blemish behind, requiring primer and repainting.

    The first two methods I mentioned can be done without damaging the paint, and no repainting will be required.
