Freeze the wax by rubbing an ice cube over the wax that has dripped onto your glass tabletop.
Scrape off the wax using a blunt knife, a single edged razor or a credit card.
Heat any small remains of wax that might be left on the glass surface using a hair dryer.
Use your scraper again to remove the heated wax remains.
Pour boiling water onto the glass tabletop if you still have wax remaining. Put a clean rag over the boiling water and then scrub the area clean.
Clean the tabletop with glass cleaner once all of the candle wax has been removed.
- If you want to burn candles on a wooden, or other porous surface, place a glass mirror under your candles before lighting them. The glass is much easier to clean the wax drips off of, and the mirror reflects the candle light creating a more dramatic effect.
