Pick away at the wax with your fingers to try to remove as much wax as possible. You can sometimes peel it away in layers until it is almost all gone.
Place ice in a small plastic bag (a sandwich bag will work) and place it on the wax. Leave it on the wax for five to ten minutes in order to harden the wax as much as you can.
Scrape the hardened wax off the wood gently with an old credit card. Come at the wax at an angel to try to get between the wax and the wood.
Once the wax is gone, place a small amount of wood cleaner on the wood and clean it off with the small rag. This should take care of any remaining wax.
Things You Will Need
