How do I get wax off of leather car seats?

How can I get wax off of my new, leather car seats? I'm an esthetician and I often keep eyebrow wax in my car in case I run out. Some of my wax beads spilled out without me realizing, and they melted in my car on my leather seats. I need to get the wax off the seats now, but I don't know what to do! How can I fix this?

I’m so sorry that this happened! I’m happy to say that it only takes four steps to get rid of the wax. Here’s how to remove it from your seats:
  • Gently scrape the wax off with a plastic knife or spatula. Try not to scrape the leather.
  • Use a hair dryer on warm to soften the wax. Blot the wax with a paper towel or cloth.
  • If there’s still wax leftover, apply the leather cleaner to the stain. Wipe the leather cleaner with a rag using circular motions until it’s gone.
  • Finish up by wiping the stained area with a leather conditioner.
Removing stains and keeping your car clean is a good way to maintain the interior of your car. Let the car insurance comparison app Jerry help maintain the rest! We’ll get you customized quotes from top insurers in seconds so that all you need to do is choose the plan that works best for you!
Best of luck—and remember, there’s no need to cry over spilled wax!
