So this is kind of a lame post but might be helpful for someone!

Remember the “bleeding” candles I made for our murder mystery Halloween party?  Well they decided to drip wax allllllll over my silver candlesticks.


"bloody" candles made a mess!

Annoying, right?!  I started to pick the wax off with my fingernails, but it was taking forever and left a waxy coating behind.


that wax was not coming off!

So I googled a solution: rinse under HOT water for a few minutes (like as hot as it will get without burning you)…


rinsing in hot water

…and once it’s soft, simply push it off!


pushing off the wax

And let me tell you, it worked like a charm!
