What is the recommended way to clean a wax warmer?

Cleaning your wax warmer after each use is essential to maintain its hygiene and extend its lifespan. Here are the recommended steps to clean a wax warmer:

  1. Turn off and unplug the wax warmer: Ensure that the wax warmer is turned off and unplugged before cleaning to avoid any accidents or injuries.
  2. Let the wax cool down: Allow the wax to cool down completely before cleaning. Attempting to clean the warmer while the wax is still hot can cause burns or damage to the unit.
  3. Remove the wax: Once the wax has cooled down, use a wooden spatula or a plastic scraper to remove any remaining wax. Avoid using metal tools as they can scratch or damage the surface of the warmer.
  4. Wipe the warmer: Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe the surface of the wax warmer, removing any residue or debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners as they can damage the surface of the warmer.
  5. Clean the wax pot: If the wax pot is removable, wash it in warm, soapy water, rinse thoroughly, and dry it completely before placing it back into the warmer. If the pot is not removable, use a soft cloth or a paper towel to wipe the inside of the pot, removing any remaining wax or debris.
  6. Disinfect the warmer: To disinfect the warmer, use a solution of equal parts water and rubbing alcohol, and wipe the surface of the warmer with a soft cloth or a paper towel. This will help to kill any bacteria or germs that may be present.

By following these recommended steps, you can clean your wax warmer effectively and maintain its hygiene and effectiveness.
