No matter what you spilled on your clothes or furnishings, we can tell you how to get it out.
You Will Need
- A metal pan
- A small hammer or dull blade
- A roll of paper towels
- An iron
- An ironing board
- Dry cleaning solvent (optional)
Put ice in pan
Put ice in a metal pan and place it on top of the wax spill.
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.
Place paper towels
On an ironing board, place two paper towels under the wax stain and two paper towels over it.
Run a warm iron over the paper towels. The iron will melt the wax and the paper towels will absorb it.
Replace the paper towels with fresh ones and iron again. Repeat this process until no more wax comes off on the paper.
