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.

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

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