Allow the candle wax to cool before attempting to remove it.
Scrape carefully and gently around the outer edge of the candle wax. Pushing forcefully in an attempt to remove all of it at once can resulting in scratching the wood surface.
Discard all the pieces of wax, removing each section a little at a time.
Move the scraper back and forth over the entire area once the wax pieces are gone in order to try to remove most of the remaining wax residue.
Finish the task by cleaning the entire surface of the dresser with a wood cleaning product of your choice and a soft cleaning cloth.
