Removing Candle Wax From a Glass Coffee Table

There can be nothing more annoying than finding wax from a candle spilled on your glass coffee table. Fortunately, there are ways to easily remove any melted wax left behind on the glass.

What You’ll Need

  • Ice Cubes
  • Soft Cloth
  • Paper Towels
  • Vinegar

Step 1: Freezing the Wax

Take the ice cubes and place them onto the solidified wax. It will take some time for the area to completely freeze, so wait approximately 10 minutes before you continue.

Step 2: Removing the Wax

Once the wax has frozen, you can use your soft cloth to gently scrape the wax off. It’s important that you ensure the cloth you use is soft to avoid scratching the surface.

Step 3: Dried Wax

If any dried wax remains on the glass surface, use paper towels and some vinegar to blur the wax. Vinegar is a great cleaning agent and works really well when mixed with hot water.

Step 4: Drying

Once you have finished cleaning the area, dry it off with a clean paper towel or soft cloth.


Removing candle wax from a glass coffee table can be a tricky process. However, with some freezing, scraping, vinegar and drying, you should be able to get rid of most wax.
