We clean our dirty dishes in our sink, so how do we clean our sink?
"I've heard lemon works really well."
If you have a white sink bleach or a bleach product is just fine, but if you have the popular stainless steel then bleach is a big no no.

"Iwould scrape them out I guess with a scrapper."
"Take a spatula and remove it."
"Some people try peanut butter."
First be sure to wait until the wax dries, then use a dull knife to scrape off what you can, be sure it's a dull knife, then take a paper towel lay it over the area and use a warm iron to remove the rest.
And if that doesn't get the wax out- wipe the whats left with some mineral oil and re-polish.
