|How to remove candle wax from piano top
Candles are great for creating a romantic mood, but the mood can quickly sour if you wind up getting melted candle wax on your fine wood furniture. To remove it, first soften the wax using a blow dryer on its hottest setting and blot up as much as you can with paper towels. Then remove what\'s left by rubbing with a cloth soaked in a solution made of equal parts white vinegar and water. Wipe clean with a soft, absorbent cloth
Tips- How to remove candle wax from piano top
The first rule of thumb to make fighting stubborn candle wax stains easier and less of a headache, is to first take preventive steps to ensure that you don\'t have them in the first place. Keep candles away from windows, doorways, and drafts as the sudden rush of moving air or wind can scatter wax. When burning candles, place them on a large enough holder so the holder will catch any wax that might happen to drip over. Also, instead of blowing out candles, which will scatter wax, use a snuffer. A snuffer gently confines the flame as it\'s being extinguished so there\'s no sudden moving air to unexpectedly scatter the wax. You can also try more expensive candles like ones that are dripless or ones that are made from beeswax or soy. Generally, cheaper candles have more additives and chemicals in them so wax stains from cheaper candles can be more difficult to remove than other kinds.
Step - How to remove candle wax from piano top
First, scrape the excess wax off. If you actually own a pressure washer you can use the pressure washer to remove the excess wax.
Then, get a water-based carpet cleaning solution. For a sidewalk, plain dish soap (like Palmolive, etc.) & water will work.
Soak the carpet/sidewalk around the wax with the solution. It needs to be *WET* (not just damp).
Using lots of clean paper towels, repeatedly "iron" the paper towels over the wax using a very hot clothing iron (hottest setting).
As each paper towel gets waxy, throw it away.
Vacuum the carpet dry. Or in your case, let the sidewalk air dry. After it is dry, inspect for any remaining wax.
Repeat the whole process if there is any wax remaining.
Some other methods – How to remove candles wax from piano top
Carefully scrape up (with the edge of a butter knife) or lift off as much solid "wax" as possible. Be careful not to spread the stain with this physical removal.
Next, place a tray full of ice cubes into a zipper type freezer bag and rest it over an affected area for several minutes.
After this "cold" method has removed as much of the wax as possible, you should then dry these "warm-hot" methods.
First, use your hair dryer (on "HI" setting) to soften the crayon. Once again, carefully scrape up (with the edge of a butter knife or piece of cardboard) as much solid "candle wax" matter as possible. Hopefully the wax will either soften so you can repeat step 1 or liquify the wax so it will be absorbed up into material.
Pre-Soak stain in isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Allow to stand about 30 minutes. Agitate with a scrub brush. Rinse thoroughly with water.
