How can I safely remove candle wax from wooden furniture?

Last night I forgot about the candle and the wax dripped unto my wooden furniture.

After u have cleaned up with hair dryer and paper towel, put miracle whip salad dressing on the spot over night and it puts the oil back into the wood. Don't rub it in until morning, and make sure you put enough on.
You will be surprised at how good it looks.

Put a paper towel over it and use a blow drier to heat the wax. The paper towel will absorb it.

Heat the wax with a hair dryer and blot up as much as you can with paper towels. After this, you can rub the spot with a cloth soaked in a solution of white distilled vinegar and water in equal parts. Wipe the surface clean with an absorbent cloth.

I use a plastic egg flipper while it is still hard.

Apply a ice cube and peel as much as possible, then put warm iron on a cloth over wax. Be sure to test everything in an inconspicuous place.

Pick off as much as possible while it's cold, then rub the rest off with a soft cloth. A thin layer of wax is a very good protective polish for wood.

i agree with notbob and the others... rubbing with soft cloth would do and never use your nails to scratch them off

ICE. Chill the wax 'til it's rock-hard - you'll notice because it's not soft - and then an easy clip it off the wood - a sharp knife would be best. You *will*, however, be left with a spot, especially if it's remained on the wood for a long time. No worries...just lacquer again! This is really not a big deal, so don't be too worried.

yes, put double folded paper towel on the wax spot and then iron the place - warm wax would stick to the paper towel
