Candle Wax off the Wall


We had a large candle that burned to the end only to drip over the side of the dish and all over the Christmas tree, the wall and the carpet. Of course it was a red candle and it stained the wall. We have scraped the wax off of it already but does anyone know what to do to get the stain off the wall? Thanks in advance.

The stain may have soaked into the paint. In that case you might need to repaint the spot. You can try taking a paper towel and your clothes iron. Iron over the paper towel. It will remove any of the wax that might be left and might lift the stain. When you are sure there is no more wax you could try a little Ajax or Comet (provided it's a white wall.)

I have found to get the stain out is to use SHOUT clothing stain remover. It sounds weird but it worked for my wife's purple candle that made a great mess for the holidays.

Use your hair dryer to melt a small area then wipe with a paper towel, then repeat steps until it's clean.
