The second way to Replace your Scentsy wax with no mess is to replace it after it has hardened. Even when the wax hardens, it can still be stubborn and not come out easily without the help of a butter knife or sharp tool.

To avoid all of the mess from breaking it into pieces, simply pop your warming tray into the freezer for 10 minutes. The wax will shrink and slide right out of the tray. No messy crumbles and no sharp objects involved.
