Removing Bees Wax from Furniture

  1. Harden the bees wax by holding an ice cube next to it. The harder the wax, the easier it'll be to remove.
  2. Scrape away as much as you can using a blunt knife. Stop just before you get to the surface of the furniture.
  3. Switch to using the ice block stick instead of the knife once you get close to the surface of the furniture. You'll be less likely to damage it.
  4. Use a cheesecloth and a bit of lemon oil to wipe off the remainder of the bees wax.
