Ok, I know you smart people out there know the answer to this! I got candle wax on my table now how can I get it off? It's not real wood. It has a shinny surface, I think it's veneer (SP?) Any ideas??

Put a cloth (one you don't care about messing up) on the wax. Iron the cloth. The wax will stick to the cloth.

The iron will also heat up the glue that's holding the veneer to the table.

According to my book on how to clean everything, lightly scape it off with the back of a blunt knife and then shine it with a chamois cloth. I would first put an ice cube on the wax to make it brittle.

I also would suggest ice to freeze it so it'll be easier to break of.

Ice is also good for getting gum out of carpet because the gum gets very hard when it is cold.
