How to Remove Candle Wax from Glass Coffee Table?
Candle wax dripping on a glass coffee table can look unsightly and detract from the ambience of a room. To clean up the mess and restore the beauty of the table, follow the steps below.
You Will Need:
- Ice Cubes
- Soft cloth
- Glass scraper
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- Put the Ice Cubes on the Wax: Put an ice cube onto the area containing the wax. The cold temperature will make the wax harden and facilitate its removal. After a few minutes have passed, remove the ice.
- Gently Scrape Off the Wax: Using your glass scraper, carefully scrape off the wax that has hardened. Do not use any abrasive material or it will scratch the glass surface. Make sure to scrape along the glass to avoid chipping.
- Soak Up the Remaining Wax: Apply some white vinegar onto a soft cloth and place the cloth onto the area with remaining wax. The vinegar will help to break down the wax. Leave the cloth on the area for a few minutes and then gently wipe it off.
- Clean Up Any Remaining Wax: Despite your efforts, there may still be some wax residues left. To remove them, mix equal parts of baking soda and water and spread the paste onto the area. Leave the paste on for a few minutes and then wipe it off with a soft cloth. Finally, rinse the area with some clean water.
Following these steps should help to restore the beauty of your glass coffee table and make sure it doesn’t become ruined by candle wax. As with any other cleaning procedure, always test it on a small area first to make sure that it won’t affect the glass itself.
Good luck with your cleaning!
