How to remove Candle Wax from Laminate Floor?

The laminate flooring looks lovely. But what if you have spilled the candle wax on it? It will definitely show up as spots and stains, diminishing the overall beauty of this new flooring style.

But this does not have to be permanent as we have the solution to remove candle wax from the laminate floor. Let’s see how we can help.

Process of removing candle wax from laminate flooring:

One of the first things you must keep in mind is that never try to remove the candle wax when it is still hot. The only impact it would create is pressing the wax further into the surface or spreading it to a larger surface area with a larger stain.

Here’s the complete process you must follow:

  1. Let the candle wax cool completely before attempting to remove it.
  2. Once fully cooled, use a sharp-ended object to scratch the wax from the laminate floor. Scratch it gently; otherwise, you might remove the top layer of the floor too.
  3. For the wax that has already been on the laminate surface, you can use a hairdryer or hot water to melt it. Once it melts, soak it in a paper towel. Use a clean towel to dry any left residues.
  4. To remove the wax stain, use a cotton ball soaked in acetone-based nail polish remover and rub it on the affected surface. And you can get rid of even the slightest trace of wax from your laminate floor.

Summing up:

By following these steps, you can get back your original laminate flooring. And remove even the slightest mark that the spilled wax might have left.
