I had some candles on and I accidentally spilled the wax all over my glass table do what I just did was use nail polish remover it's easy and fast . I used a napkin to clean it off with and it worked . Then I took some good smelling spray and I sprayed it over my desk so it wouldn't smell and that was it I was finished . When I was taking the wax off,I had to scrub a bit like hard but I worked and if u missed some spots it would show up after it would dry out.

I accidentally broke a holder with a burning votive candle on my daughter's glass coffee table yesterday, she wasn't home but would be within the hour. I carefully scraped the hardened wax with a steak knife then rubbed the remaining wax with some peanut butter on a paper towel.....WOW!! The table was restored to its pre-waxed condition! My daughter will never know........this was so easy, I just had to share.

I think Paper bags, work better than paper towels. Just set it over, iron it up, and it's gone. :)

Trisodium phosphate, 200 gram solution in 1 liter warm water, supposedly removes wax. It is sold cheaply at paint stores. Apply and rub with a firm bristled brush. If you are concerned about chemical safety, read the MSDS safety data sheet first.

At this point, I assume you need to dissolve a thin layer of wax off the glass. Use a product like 'goo gone' which is mostly citrus oil.

provided the wax is in a thick chunk- it can be removed with a plasic knife/spatula. then the mark should just polish out.

You can do one of a couple of things. If it is just regular glass, carefully (so that you don't cut yourself) shave the wax off using a razor blade (the kind that goes into a utility knife). You can also get flat edge razors with handles at your local home improvement store. Just ask someone who works there. If it is frosted glass, you might want to try laying three or four sheets of paper towel over the wax (depending on how much wax) and running a medium-hot iron over it. The wax will melt into the paper towels. Then, spray and wipe with 409 to remove any residual, and spray a final coat of windex and wipe for the clear shine. Hope this helps!
