Dinner Party Woes (Part 5)

Waxing lyrical…

Candles can make all the different to the atmosphere of a room. However, the ambience might not be so relaxing the next morning, as sticky residue remains impaled on the choicest surfaces. But no fear, for Gleem is here to advise you how to remove this seemingly stubborn material.

The Iron:

Turn this on to a medium heat and it will cleverly soak up the wax as it melts!  Layer paper towels on top of the wax and cover with a tea towel. Move the iron over the cloth so the wax melts, to be absorbed by the layer of paper towels.

The Hairdryer:

Turn it on to its slowest, hottest setting and remove the softened wax with a paper towel. Then wipe it down with cloth which has been dipped in equal parts vinegar and water.

A can of compressed air:

This cools rather than heats the wax. Blow the air on the wax to cool and make it more brittle, then scrape away using a plastic spatula. Do not use a metal object to scrape as could mark the surface

Use an all-purpose spray to remove the final layer of grease.

Needless to say, apply caution when using these solutions on a wooden surface!

Happy Gleeming!
