I'm struggling to get one of my wax pots clean. It had Cerepil hot wax in it. I've tried wax remover and soaking in hot water with fairy liquid! Any other suggestions? Many thanks

Would popping the pot into the freezer work? Use gloves obviously as your hands would stick to the frozen pot. Try chipping it off perhaps.
Failing that pop it into a hot oven with foil around it to capture the melted wax, and wipe clean with kitchen roll if it melts off. Again be so very careful to wear heat resistant gloves.
Option 3 - throw the thing out and start afresh or ignore the less than spotless pot.

Acetone & a wax strip. If u heat it slightly most of it should scoop out with a wax stick first

Hi
I use my normal nail polish remover to clean the pot.
1- Start your wax pot.
2- When wax is melted clean it with any cloth or cotton swab.
3- in the end remove any bits of wax with your normal acetone.
