Candle wax was spilled on my wooden floor. It is dry now. How do I remove the wax?
By Gayle from New Iberia, LA
Renters caused problems for us: How can I take spilled melted wax off hardwood-floors, it also splashed up on the walls and metal closet doors.
Thank you for your help

all i did just put a paper towel on the floor and go over with a hot iron and put stem and the wax came right up. Did not damage the hardwood floor.
I have read the responses and I discovered something that will help remove candle wax from a prefinished hardwood floor. First use a plastic putty knife to remove the major build-up and dispose of the scraps. Next use the previous mentioned Goof Off on a soft cotton rag to remove the rest. And it gets better - lastly use the edge of the plastic putty knife to remove that last bit in the cracks between the boards. Waa laa!
Husband just spilled candle wax all over the hardwood floor. Used a rubber spatula to scrape it after it dried. I then used the Goo bgone as suggested. The floor is like new! Thanks!
