Cleaning candle wax from brick

Excess candle wax can be scraped away and swept up or vacuumed with shop vacuum. Spray WD-40 on stains, doing a section at a time. Let set. Blot with cleaning rag. Because brick is porous, you may not be successful getting wax out of pores. To dispose of rag, seal in airtight container like a jar or coffee tin. Solvent cleaners are flammable, volatile, and smelly. Improper disposal could lead to spontaneous combustion.
