My husband was chasing my 20 month old around the house yesterday when he slipped on my recently polished floors and fell into my sofa table where my Scentsy warmer sits. My freshly painted walls and hardwood floors were now covered in blue wax. My heart immediately sank as I quickly jumped to the conclusion that we would have to repaint the walls. Thankfully I was able to remove every bit of wax without any problems by following the steps below. Our walls are an eggshell finish and I doubt this would work on a flat finish.
1. Quickly grab a hair dryer, handheld vacuum and a white washcloth or paper towel.
2. Use your nails to gently scrape off some of the wax. It isn't necessary in all spots but it helps.
3. Use the hand held vacuum to suck up the wax shavings you just scraped off. Do not try wiping these with a towel or you will just smear the wax.
4. In one hand use the blow dryer to heat up a section of spilled wax while wiping it clean with the washcloth or paper towel. Keep this up till wax is wiped clean. It worked within seconds for me. If you notice your walls are being damaged then I'd stop immediately. If there is still a thick amount of wax on the floor or wall then scrape it off with your nail and try heating up again.
Please excuse the crappy video.
Some of the wax fell onto our white carpet and I was able to get it off the same way. I don't know if this would work for large amounts. I have read that using a brown paper bag and an iron works for wax on carpets.
