Place two to three ice cubes inside a small plastic bag. Close the bag just above the ice cubes and secure it with a twist tie or tie a knot in it.
Place the ice directly over the wax and hold in place for 60 seconds. The goal is to freeze the wax so it becomes hardened. Use a small rag to hold the ice in place and protect your fingers.
Use the back side of a dull butter knife to scrape the wax away. It should come right off. If the wax covers a large surface area, you may need to repeat the process to get it all.
Use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser if the wax left a color stain. Wet the Magic Eraser and rub until the stain is gone. You may need to apply pressure to get it all.
