Cleaning a fancy, metal candle holder

Candle wax softens and melts below the boiling point of waterHeat up water in a kettle, heat a cup of water in a cup, or if your kitchen water is properly hot, use the kitchen faucetUsing gloves to manipulate the holder flush the holder with boiling waterUse a spoon (preferably plastic) to scrape away the softening waxRun the faucet into hard to get at nooks and cranniesThis will do less damage to the holder than scraping it with a hard object like a knife or scissor
