I blew my candle out the other day on my brand new wood coffee table. I now have dried wax everywhere. Could you please tell me how to get it out?

Getting Wax Off a Wood Coffee Table

When you blow a candle out and the candle's wax drips onto your wood coffee table, the best thing you can do is let the wax dry before doing anything. Once the it is dry, apply ice to to the wax, which will make it extremely hard and brittle. Then, you can simply scrape the wax off with a plastic spatula. Because you want the wood surface to stay nice, you should polish the table with a cream polish making sure the wax hasn't left any residue.

I like the Idea of Potpourri but hate the mess of potpourri burners and don’t like how it looks in a bowl. Are there any other products that do the same thing?

An Easier Potpourri Home Fragrancer

Some people love the look of a bowl full of dried potpourri as much as they love the smell. This isn't always the case, though, and if you just want the scent of this home fragrancer without the bowl of dried flowers try displaying a bowl of potpourri beads instead. These tiny, pearlized resin beads are infused with fragrance and act just like potpourri. You can set them out in a decorative bowl and they'll act as any home fragrancer, scenting the air around them.
These little beads are also perfect for making your own sachets or car fresheners. Simply take a small organza bag and fill it with the beads. This is a lot less mess than traditional potpourri but with all the same great fragrance.

I want to keep mosquitoes away but hate the smell of citronella. Is there a good smelling candle that will help?

Outdoor Home Fragrance: The Better Citronella Candle

For years people have had one scent choice when trying to keep mosquitoes at bay. While citronella can be effective, it's not often the best smelling candle. Now you can have it both ways; a great smelling candle and some protection from those nasty biting insects. There are now home fragrance candles on the market that have combined the scent and effect of citronella with other great smelling scents. Available in jar candles, pillars, tea lights and tarts, you now have a multitude of choices in your outdoor home fragrance candles. Not only do they help you enjoy the outdoor but they look much better than a plain, yellow candle.
Choose your outdoor home fragrance from such yummy scents as Garden Spice, Garden Green Herb, Garden Sunny Blooms and Garden Wild Berry—all with a hint of citronella. Now doesn't that sound better than old yellow?

Just set it somewhere that it won't get tipped over and let this simple little home fragrance product do its job.
