Stripping wax

Hi folks
i have some woodwork to paint in eggshell, it has been previously finished in wax.
Does any one have any solutions that dont involve stinky toxic wax stripper and wirewool?

Your never done with learning,what might be worth looking at is old masters cleaner wax remover?

Hi Zen
I used Krud Kutter to remove wax on a coffee table recently and boy did it work. Trouble is it seems it is now hard to get hold of, but if you can buy some.

Thanks Richard, that would be a perfect alternative to the solvent stuff. I will see if i can find some.

Thanks J, have you used that? Is it solvent?

Give Fluxaf Graffiti Clean a whirl… turns wax into a “gel” which can be easily removed (scraped); awesome!!! don’t use on previously painted substrate though as it could damage the paint - I use on varnished/waxed kitchens…
