    Default Removing wax

    I accidentally knocked a candle and spilt wax all down my bedroom wall, over the powerpoint (not inside the plugs thank god!) and a teeny bit on the carpet.

    It's a rental, how the eff do I get it off?

    There's a few YouTube videos on this.
    And quite a few articles.
    A common method seems to be scrape off the excess wax, then apply heat like a hairdryer and wipe off residue as it softens.
    Then wash with warm soapy water.
    I'd be careful washing a wall. Is there a test patch you can try that would be barely noticeable?
