take paper towel or a tea towel your ok to throw out after. Put it on top of the wax. Take your iron and once it is heated, put on top of the paper towel. the heat will melt the wax under the paper towel and the towel acts as a sponge as well as a protector and will soak up the liquid.

Razor bladeBrown paper bag over the wax and a warm iron over that. Move the paper bag around a bit to absorb it all.

1. Peel off any remaining tape, use a very sharp razor blade and be careful not to scratch the surface of the stone.2. The remaining sticky residue wax can usually be removed with a rag and acetone.Pour the acetone on a clean white rag and rub the area until all the sticky residue is gone.3. If the adhesive has left a stain, then prepare a poultice of Diatomaceous earth or similar powder with one of the followingsolvents:*Mineral spirits*Toluene*Xylene*Methylene chlorideFor furthur information about granite & its removals visit the website which is given below.

Using a new single edge razor blade, carefully scrape off the excess. Then use a paper towel or brown paper bag with an iron, set on low melt the wax into the paper. After use a stone soap. If a stain is present afterwards see the stain chart.
