    Try putting it into a freezer for a few hours
    It makes the excess wax easy to remove

    For removing exess wax from items like Christmas tree candle holders we usually place it on a paper towel and rest it atop the garage oven at a moderate temperature that just lets the wax slowly melt down to get dissolved by the paper.
    Be careful to not burn down the garage, though.

    What is a garage oven? You cook food in the garage?

    I often clean wax by poring boiling water over it. Fast, easy, and effective.
    You can also just dunk something into almost boiling water and the wax will float off in a few minutes.
    I'm not lost. I'm exploring.

    Ahemmm...
    I do have a garage (where never a car had been) modified into a private mechanical shop and there's an oven where I can do such stinky heat stuff without poinsoning the whole house.
