The freezer will usually work. Just freeze the holder for a couple of hours and the wax will become brittle and pop right off. Or we use a heat gun and carefully heat the wax and catch the melted wax with paper towels as it loosens. It is, of course best top use bobeches, or spray the candle holder first with Pam or another non stick spray before use.

Stick the brass in the freezer for about 2 hours and the wax will come off super easy. Hope that helps!

Heat the hard wax on the candelabra with a hair dryer. Then keep mopping up the wax as it melts.

You can try putting a couple paper towels on the wax and then using an iron on its lowest setting to gently heat the towels. The wax should be absorbed by the towel as it heats. Use as many clean paper towels as you need to absorb all the wax.

Any wax left in a freezer for just 30 minutes crumbles off like it was never there. Hope that helps.
