The freezer will usually work. Just freeze the holder for a couple of hours and the wax will become brittle and pop right off. Or we use a heat gun and carefully heat the wax and catch the melted wax with paper towels as it loosens. It is, of course best top use bobeches, or spray the candle holder first with Pam or another non stick spray before use.

Heat the hard wax on the candelabra with a hair dryer. Then keep mopping up the wax as it melts.

I worked at a home rental store and we used WD-40.
Put it in the freezer for a while.. The wax will just pop right off!
I don't know if a hair dryer would hurt the candleabra but I would try it a little at a time. Hope this helps.
How do I clean wax from a 9 stemmed brass candelabra?
Not at all difficult, mizmac, but perhaps a bit time consuming. A sink full of hot water, as hot as you can make it (or a hair dryer or heat gun if you have) and alternate by putting the thing in your deepfreeze.
What is the best way to clean brass? I think I have candle wax on the bottom of the stand. What is the best way to remove it?
Any wax left in a freezer for just 30 minutes crumbles off like it was never there. Hope that helps.
