The hairdryer definitely works, I tried it on my leather dining chair - just remember to keep the hairdryer moving and not to get too close with it. A good tip is to clean up with baby wipes with that have baby lotion in them. The leather will absorb it and prevent it drying out.

As some wax also dripped on to my varnished oak dining table, I can also testify to the credit card method working, for any residue left, I VERY carefully used the hairdryer (from a good distance) and good old baby wipes to finish off.

Did you ever remove the wax? Or did you ever buy a new chair? I just found some cheap chairs, really depends on what you are after.

Is there anyway to get wax stains out of patten leather? I have a purse that the wax seems to have stained it since the wax was left on.
