You know, when you think about it, there are few things more beautiful in the evening than candlelight. But sometimes, what you’re left with the next morning, well it’s not so pretty, wax drippings on your furniture. Now, there are two ways to get rid of these, the hot method and the cold method. Let’s start with this one. Now, heat softens, in fact it will liquefy wax, but the trick is to put on enough heat to melt the wax without damaging the furniture, for that a hairdryer is perfect. For the cold method, you’ll need some ice, or you can use frozen vegetables, i happen to like peas. The ice, or in this case, the frozen vegetables makes the wax very cold and very brittle, so that by taking something like this spatula, we can just chip it right off. So go ahead, light up those candles, enjoy a romantic evening, you’ve got nothing to fear from wax drips.
