you can try and put boiling hot water down the drain, but be careful It depends on how far the wax went before it solidified. You might be able to get by with just removing the sink "P" trap, cleaning it and putting it back. If the wax solidified later in the pipe, you'll need to run a "snake" through the pipe to break loose the wax. A snake is just a device for running down the drain to break loose junk that got stuck.
