Instructions

  1. 1

    Place a handful of ice cubes in a plastic sandwich bag.

  2. 2

    Set the bag on top of the candle wax, and let it sit there for five minutes.

  3. 3

    Remove the bag, and scrape off the hardened wax with a butter knife. Instead of flaking, the wax will now come off in large chunks, leaving little or no residue behind.

  4. 4

    Wipe the vinyl with a damp cloth and drop of dish soap.
