My daughter spilled wax from a bug repellent candle over a large portion of the deck. The wax is into the wood. Does anyone have a solution to remove the wax? Thanks,
Using Viva Paper toweling to cover the area where the wax is, place a warm iron over it to melt the wax which will collect in the paper toweling. Do it as often as you need to to get out as much as possible. Good luck.
You can remove the wax with mineral spirits. Saturate a rage with mineral spirits and let it sit there until it soaks up the wax, don't let it dry out and DON'T do it in the heat of the day or direct sunlight.
if possible, simply unscrew deck boards, flip over and re attach-worked for my stairs.
Does anyone know how to remove wax stains off a pressure treated deck? It hasn't been stained yet.

This is what I would do:
First, scrape off all the wax you can with a putty knife.
Then, put down an old towel to act as a blotter, and iron it. Hopefully the wax will melt and be absorbed into the towel. You may have to repeat that several times
If all fails, I would try to pressure wash it with HOT water
