If you’re here because you need to find out how to remove wax from walls, I’m sorry. I know all too well that oh*#@! moment when wax is spilled onto a wall.
My wax on the wall dilemma started when I was cleaning out the medicine cabinet. While closing the cabinet, I knocked over the top of the wax warmer and ended up with a massive wax spill down the bathroom wall and on the floor…ugh!

How to Remove Wax from Walls
Now, I want to post this disclaimer…my walls have semi-gloss paint and it’s easy to wipe things off of it. If your walls are a lighter color or have a flat base paint, this may not work as well. Also, if the blow dryer is getting too hot (over heating), stop and let it cool down. Okay, let’s get to getting rid of this wax on the walls.
What you’ll need:
- blow dryer
- paper towels
Turn the blow dryer onto the hottest and fastest blow setting. Place the blow dryer about an 1″ to 1 1/2″ away from the wax spill edge (work from edge to edge). Turn on the blow dryer and move it in a small circular motion. As soon as the wax begins to melt, shut off the blow dryer and wipe any melted wax with a paper napkin.
Continue the above steps until all of the wax is removed from the wall. And that is how to remove wax from walls!
To make sure this doesn’t happen again, I’m switching to an essential oil diffuser, like the ones below⇓ These diffusers use water and essential oils to produce a mist for the room.
