How to remove wax stains on leather
The chances of removing wax stains on leather depend entirely on the
type of the leather. Porous aniline, suede and nubuck are more difficult
to treat, because the wax sinks into the surface. Coloured waxes can
also cause problems, as the containing dye may colour the leather too.

To remove drawn wax residues, heat the stains with a hair dryer and try to remove the stains with an absorbent powder (chalk dust or magnesium powder). Rub in the powder and let cool down. Remove the powder with a vacuum cleaner and a brush. Repeat until no further improvement can be achieved. You cannot predict whether the stains disappear completely. If the result is not sufficient, it will need to be treated professionally. But not all leather types can be saved. Stained leather clothing should be given to a dry cleaning company specialising in leather. Most cases can be saved this way.
