Removing Wax from a Glass Coffee Table
Have you ever had a candle or something else drip wax onto a glass coffee table? It can be a tricky spot to clean, especially when trying to remove melted wax from the surface. But fret not! Even though it can be a bit of a hassle, wax can be effectively removed from your glass coffee table with some everyday items. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
Step 1: Gather supplies
Before tackling the wax, gather everything you need:
- Plastic scraper, such as a credit card or ruler: Use to loosen the surface wax and scrape it off.
- Old cloth or unused paper towels :Use for wiping away excess wax.
- Glass cleaner :Use to clean away any residue or remaining smudges.
Step 2: Apply heat
Turn a hairdryer to its lowest setting and apply heat to the wax. Move it across the area in a circular motion and gradually, the wax will melt. However, don’t leave the hairdryer in one spot for too long or else you risk overheating the glass!
Step 3: Scrape the wax off
With the melted wax now softened, take the plastic scraper and scrape it off the surface. Move the scraper in the same direction and light pressure and it should come off easily. Once you’ve gotten most of it off, take the cloth and wipe off the remaining residue.
Step 4: Finish off with glass cleaner
Finally, use a glass cleaner and wipe the whole area until it’s shiny and clean. Glass cleaners have been specially designed to help buff away smudges, fingerprints, and dust, so your glass will sparkle.
And that’s it! Depending on the size of the wax stain, it might take a couple passes to get it all off. But by following the steps outlined above, you should eventually be able to remove wax from your glass coffee table successfully! Good luck!
