Stain Buster — Candle Wax

Candle wax

Fabric

If the wax is still soft, freeze the item to harden the wax, and then scrape off the excess wax. Sponge with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent. Place the stain between clean paper towels and press with a warm iron to transfer the wax to the paper towels. Replace the paper towels frequently to absorb more wax and prevent transferring the stain to other places on the fabric. Pretreat with a prewash stain remover and wash, adding bleach or hydrogen peroxide if safe for the fabric. If any wax remains, rewash.

 

Upholstery

If the wax is still soft, freeze it by applying an ice cube wrapped in a small plastic bag, and then scrape off the excess wax. With a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent and blot until the solvent is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears.

 

Carpet

If the wax is still soft, freeze it by applying an ice cube wrapped in a small plastic bag, and then scrape off the excess wax. Sponge with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent. Cover the stain with a clean white cloth and press, using the tip of a warm iron to transfer the wax to the cloth. Repeat, using a clean portion of the cloth until all the wax is transferred from the carpet to the cloth. If a colour stain remains, sponge it with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent. Blot dry.
