    I am only 14, and i dripped a bunch of candle wax on our front porch! My mum is making me take it off. :rolleyes: our porch is made of kind of thin metal and its painted. does any one know what to do? Iv'e already tried nail polish remover and ironing it off with newspaper.
    thx

    Try a hairdryer. As it's painted metal you should use low heat at first and step it up as required. Once melted lift it with a soft cotton cloth. Cellulose thinners will clean the last of it up but as you are only 14 I'd suggest you get your mother to do that part...thinners can be dangerous.

    Be careful!
