  1. Freeze the wax, and scrape it off

    Fill a plastic bag with ice cubes, and place it on the wax to freeze it. Once the wax is hard, gently scrape it to remove remaining pieces.

  2. Remove the stain

    If the wax leaves a stain on the leather, mix earth powder with a small amount of water to make a paste. Apply the paste to the stain, and let it dry. Once the paste is completely dry, use a soft toothbrush to gently brush the paste off the leather. If the stain is still there, make more paste, apply it to the stain, and repeat the process until the stain is gone.

  3. Apply a leather conditioner

    Clean the leather with a mild soap and water, and allow the area to dry completely. Use a lint-free cloth to apply a small amount of leather conditioner. Let the conditioner dry on the leather for at least two hours.
