How to Remove Candle Wax from a Glass Coffee Table
Having a candle on your glass coffee table can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your home. However, things can become a little messy if melted wax ends up spilling on your furniture. Fortunately, removing that wax does not have to be a dreaded chore. Here are some helpful tips for taking off candle wax from a glass coffee table:
Gather Your Materials:
- Soft cloths or paper towels
- Hair dryer
- Small plastic bag (or plastic wrap)
- Ice cubes
- Scraper (optional)
Step One: Warm Up the Wax with a Hair Dryer
Set your hair dryer to its lowest heat setting, and point the dryer at the wax. Keep the dryer about a foot away from the glass and move it in a circular motion as you go. This will help to soften the wax for easier removal.
Step Two: Use a Plastic Bag
Once the wax has been softened, take your plastic bag and cover it over the warm wax. Try to press the plastic bag down so that it sticks to the wax and remove it in one piece.
Step Three: Rub the Wax Away with Ice Cubes
If the plastic bag method fails, the ice cubes will help. Take the ice cubes and rub them over the areas with wax. This will help to freeze the wax, making it brittle and easier to remove. You can also use a scraper to help remove the wax.
Step Four: Clean the Glass
Once the wax has been removed, use your cloth or paper towel to wipe away any remaining residue. Use a glass cleaner to remove any streaks and cleanup the table.
With these easy steps, you can easily remove candle wax from your glass coffee table. Keep these tips in mind the next time you need to clean up wax and you’ll have a sparkling table in no time.
