How to Remove old wax off hardwood floors?
If it really is wax, you will not remove it as it will have slowly been absorbed deep into the wood. The deeper you get into the wood, the less there will be but you would need to remove a lot of wood to get the floor free of wax. The easiet way to refresh the surface of any wooden floor is to use a floor sander - hire one from a tool-hire shop.

Remove floor wax from wood paneling?
You can remove candle wax spills from wooden furniture or just about any type of wood surface. First you need to soften the wax with a hairdryer set on medium heat to melt the wax. When the wax starts to melt wipe it off with a soft cloth, you will see it move like butter. Wipe the area with a mild vinegar solution and polish as you normally would for a great shine!

How do you remove wax polish prior to painting furniture?
Before repainting any furniture or cabinets, it's a good idea to wash it first with trisodium phosphate (TSP), which is found in the paint section of the hardware store. To remove heavy wax build-up, use mineral spirits or paint thinner, rags, and lots of elbow grease. You might have to use fine steel wool, especially if the wax is in crevices. Remember, your goal is to remove the wax, not damage the wood. Any wax left on the wood will prevent the paint from sticking as it should, and you will be left with streaks.

How do you remove melted candle wax?
If candle wax has melted onto a hard, non-porous surface, it can usually be scraped off with a blunt implement like a plastic knife. On a porous surface, however, try putting an ice cube over the wax. Wait until it melts, then remove the hardened wax. Wax melted into fabric may be removed by placing the fabric between layers of paper towels and running a warm iron over them. Replace the paper toweling as it becomes saturated with melted wax. Once the majority of the wax is removed from the fabric, if it is a garment, apply a laundry pretreatment product like Spray 'n Wash and then launder according to the garment's directions. If the fabric is not a garment and not able to be laundered, see if dry-cleaning is an option. If not, attempt to iron out all the wax with clean paper towels. Wax in carpet may be removed with a commercial wax remover or a product like Goo Gone, but realize that these products may leave an oily residue that will need to be removed by a carpet cleaner. This just happened to me. All I did was use the Mr.Clean white sponge deal and it took the wax right off my wood table. It didn't scratch or harm the wood table. I was amazed as this was a huge candle that melted on my good wood table. What a relief!

How do you get red candle wax off of a wood mantel?
First, scrape off as much wax as you can using a plastic lifter, the kind you use on teflon pans. If there are indentations in the wood, use a smaller tool, even a wooden toothpick for small spaces. Try not to use metal utensils which will damage the wood. Once you have removed as much wax as possible using this method, remove the rest with hot water and soap. Fill a bowl with the hottest water you can tolerate using rubber gloves. Dip a cloth in the water and wring out the cloth before applying it to the wood. The heat in the cloth will melt the wax into the cloth. Keep doing this until the wax is gone. Dry the wood immediately with a dry cloth. When the wood is completely dry, apply a coating of oil or furniture polish depending on what type of finish is already on the mantle. If the mantle had a varathane coating, the oil or funiture polish won't be necessary. Dump the water from the bowl outside to keep the wax out of your drains. - Dave.
