If wax has spilled onto your carpet: lay a terry cloth towel over the wax stain and using a hot iron, iron the stain. The wax will melt and the terry cloth will soak up the melted wax. Works on upholstered furniture also.

You can also use papertowels - but watch the heat of the iron.

The cloth has to be WHITE, and also wet. You may end up burning, or staining the fiber if you dont use those two things.

To remove candle wax from tables and countertops without marring them, use the side of a plastic outlet or light-switch plate. Credit cards are usually too flimsy and can bend, but a plastic light-switch cover will do the trick with ease!

You can scrape things w/ one of the small rectangular plastic tabs that are used to close bags of bread or other foods. They're small & have some flexibility which is often useful. They're disposable b/c you always seem to get more. We store some in a kitchen drawer in a small pill bottle. You can store 'twisty ties' the same way. This storage method keeps us from accumulating too many.
