Please tell me how to remove candle wax from marble floors. I've scrapped the "blobs" off, but the wax stain remains on the black floor. Thanks!

You may need a pro, but there are a couple things you can try.

Tile and marble suppliers sell a thing called "poultice." It may work.

You can make a compound from baking soda (Arm and Hammer, of course) and Ivory Liquid. Put it on the stain and leave it several hours. Then wash it off.

Do not use any type of acid cleaner.
