To clean the wax heater more easily, proceed quickly after you have waxed, turn it on, and let it warm up a little, but be careful because the instructions often advise not to use it without wax.

In any case, turn off the wax heater and unplug, and of course, be careful not to burn yourself.

With heat, the wax becomes more fluid, softens, and, therefore, it is easier to remove it. You can remove it with a wooden stick like ice cream; you place it on the wax stains and drag it carefully to collect the wax but test it on a small spot to make sure you do not scratch the surface.
