If your candle has ran or dripped down your tiles, leave the wax to cool completely (if next to a window, and cool outside open it a-jar) the "drips" or "runs" will then flick off easily after an hour or so.... if the wax has had far to fall (creating splashes) place an ice pack or something frozen over it (after its had time to cool) then it should lift easily by hand, if not use a wooden spatula to avoid scratches. In my experience re-heating/ warming wax or the surface makes for an even bigger mess.... and if your super Thrifty you could always save the wax you've collected and melt down into a new candle?! Hope this Helps Betsy, Bx

Could someone please tell me how to remove candle wax from a tile floor?

Put an old towel on top of the wax and use your iron to melt it. The towel will soak it up. Throw the wax laden towel away. (10/22/2007)

Get a Ziploc bag and fill with lots ice, lay it on the area until it freezes or gets really cold, then you can use a blunt blade putty knife or the edge of a metal spatula to bring it up, then just lightly scrub the area with soap water and a scrubbie. (10/22/2007)

You cannot afford to throw away the used towel every time you use the towel to remove the wax from the tiles.

If the temperature of the tiles is allowed to increase, the wax will come out. But how to heat the tiles? If one uses sand paper and rubs the area pretty fast, it will come out. Otherwise pour some hot water over that area and immediately scrub the area lightly with a blade without using force so that the wax gets removed without making any indelible scratch marks on the tiles.

You can also heat it up with a blow dryer and then scrape it up with a credit card (10/24/2007)

I have used paper grocery sacks and an iron to heat and absorb the wax from carpets. I would think this would also work for tile, just go slowly and when the section of the sack you are using has become saturated just move to the next clean area of paper until done. Clean normally afterwards. (10/29/2007)

I finally decided to go on my knees and scrape the wax off with an old credit card. Then I washed the floor with Builder's Tile Cleaner. Amazing! (05/06/2008)

The most effective, gentlest way is the iron and towel method. One needn't even melt the wax. Softening it with the heat is enough to remove it with a towel. This is also the only way I was able to remove wax from grout. (09/04/2009)
