A waxy situation. If a burning candle drips melted wax all over your tabletop or your sofa, don't stress. Let it cool completely and chip off the excess wax with the edge of a credit card. Place a paper towel on top of the waxy mess and place a warm iron on top of the towel; it'll melt the wax, and the towel will absorb it. Repeat until the mess is totally gone.
