I saw this on a tv special on public television:<br><br>
-If there are huge tall globs of wax that you can pick off, do so. But do not scrape on your table or floor or you will scratch it for sure.-<br><br><br><br>
Heat an iron on medium heat. Place a paper towel over the wax on table or carpet. (You may want to double the paper towel if you're concerned about the heat level, since you do not want the wax on your iron!)<br><br>
Press lightly with the iron the paper towel. Rub it back and forth a couple times, like you would if you were ironing. You will see the greasy looking wax being picked up by the paper towel. Keep doing this with <span>fresh, clean towels</span> until it's all gone! Don't keep using the same dirty towels.<br><br>
This works perfectly. My carpet looked great. I just tried this yesterday on a large amount of wax that had spilled onto my carpet. It worked on my wood table too, and in just minutes. It's impossible to get out any other way.<br><br><br><br>
That'll save you on carpet repair!

I wonder what the likelihood of bubbling the finish on a wood table would be, especially one that has already been scorched by a candle that some wine guzzling Rebels had neglected and let run all over the place?? Not that it's ever happened to ME, mind you . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Great tip and one that I'll sure try at the next tragedy, thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">
