Candle wax, chewing gum
Fill a plastic bag with ice and put it on the wax or gum until it becomes brittle enough to flake off. Then wipe area with a clean cloth dampened with mineral spirits. With a clean cloth gently wipe any remaining particles off. Scrape excess off with a dull knife.
For shallow surface burns, rub gently with fine steel wool coated lightly with mineral spirits. For deeper burns, scrape away charred areas with a small dull knife. Then rub the surface with fine steel wool and mineral spirits once more. Use the Mannington touch-up kit to finish.
