Removing Wax from Lead Crystal Candle Holder?

How do I remove a lot of wax from a leaded crystal candle holder? The holder is about ten inches high, about 7 inches across, and it is filled with wax (about 3 inches deep). Lesson learned, don't allow others to "please light the candles". Please help!

Fill your sink with warm water. Insert the candle sticks for a short while. A lot of the wax will fall away. Keep doing this until most of the wax is gone. Re warm the water as it cools.

Eventually (not more than half an hour) put the candles sticks into hot water, use a soft cloth to wipe them.

Finally wipe with vinegar or white spirit. Rinse with cold water to bring back sparkle.

This method works on all candle sticks, and then if you have wax on furniture or fabric, use a warm iron over a piece of paper towel, or brown paper, until the wax is absorbed into the paper.

I have had success removing candle wax by placing the container in the freezer. After the container gets really cold, you can scrape the wax off easily.
