  • I doubt it pretty seriously. You can pick out the big pieces that flake off and try to resolve to get rid of the residue but it will probably keep a waxy texture, sorry :(

  • wait until it dries then place a moist cloth on it and put a warm iron on the cloth it should melt the wax move the cloth every few seconds so not to retransfer the wax

  • Try an ice cube on it (to harden the wax), then scraping it off with a butter knife.

  • Cloth and warm iron. My dad and brother run a carpet/upholstery cleaning company and that is how they always get wax up.
