Removing Candle Wax from a Glass Coffee Table
Having a glass coffee table in the living room might look amazing, but wax from candles and other surfaces is often left behind. Fortunately, it’s possible to quickly and easily remove the wax without damaging your furniture. Follow these steps to get rid of candle wax and keep your coffee table looking as beautiful as ever.
Step 1: Clear the Area
Before beginning, clean the glass coffee table surface of any dirt and dust to ensure you get a perfectly clean finish.
Step 2: Apply Heat
To make the wax easier to remove, use a hair dryer to heat it for a few seconds. This should make the wax soft and malleable, making it easier to remove.
Step 3: Scrape Off the Wax
Carefully scrape the wax off the glass coffee table with a plastic or silicone scraper. Keep the scraper at an angle and scrape away from your body for a safer approach. The wax should easily come off.
Step 4: Finish Up
After all the wax has been removed, buff the area with a soft cloth to restore your glass coffee table’s luster.
To ensure that wax doesn’t build up again, consider investing in some candles designed to emit less wax when burned.
- Never use a metal scraper, as it could scratch the glass.
- If you’re still having trouble scraping off the wax, add more heat or gently use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol.
- Don’t rub too hard, as you could damage the glass.
