I recently built a new deck with treated lumber and was waiting for the wood to dry out a little before I sealed it with a waterproof sealant. Unfortunately my 3 year old son decided to mash a wax bug candle into the wood in 3 seperate places. Now no matter what I try I cannot get the ugly wax stains out. These stains make the deck look wet in those areas. I was hoping that they would diminish over time but its been about 6 months and no luck, does anyone have any suggestions?
