How to Remove Wax from Fabric

Watch more Stains & Laundry videos: https:// out a candle can be a satisfying end to an evening—unless the melted wax ends up splattered across your shirtfront. Then it’s time to just chill out — literally.Step 1: Put ice in pan
Put ice in a metal pan and place it on top of the wax spill.Step 2: Chip away wax
When the wax is frozen solid, remove the pan and chip away at the wax with a small hammer or dull knife.Tip
If you’re able to remove most of the wax this way, apply dry cleaning solvent to the remaining residue and your work is done. If a large amount of wax remains, continue with the remaining steps.Step 3: Place paper towels
On an ironing board, place two paper towels under the wax stain and two paper towels over it.Tip
If the wax-stained fabric has a second layer, like the leg of a pair of pants, make sure to put the bottom paper towels between the stained layer and the bottom layer.Step 4: Run iron
Run a warm iron over the paper towels. The iron will melt the wax and the paper towels will absorb it.Step 5: Repeat process
Replace the paper towels with fresh ones and iron again. Repeat this process until no more wax comes off on the paper.Did You Know?
