Best answer:

Answer by Trish T
I was just reading something in a magazine about this–you take a paper bag and lay it over the wax, then plug in an iron on low, and iron the bag over the wax. Supposedly the wax will stick to the paper.

    Do what Trish said and keep moving the bag until nothing comes up. Computer paper works good too. It just melts the wax into the paper so it’s important to keep it moving using a different spot on the paper until nothing comes up. You’ll get what I mean once you try it.

Tell me what you're thinking...
