  1. Remove candle wax from furniture with ice cubes

In case candle wax ends up on your furniture, there’s no need to risk harm to its surface by attempting to remove it forcefully.

This process makes it simple to remove the wax cleanly, ensuring your furniture’s finish or fabric remains unspoiled.
