Wax stain removal can be a bit of a challenge, but it’s definitely possible to save your garments from waxy ruin. When removing wax drippings from your clothes, allow the wax to dry and remove excess by scraping it off or by freezing the garment and snapping off the frozen wax, instead of working it deeper into the garment’s fibers. Once the wax is solid, you can remove the bulk of it easily. Next, you’ll want to use the trusty iron and paper towel trick to heat any remaining wax and transfer it to the paper towel. Now, you can pre-treat using JOBY series, soap supplies, and a soft-bristled toothbrush before washing.
Rub the wax with an ice cube and then crinkle the tablecloth to get larger bits of wax off. Freeze again and scrape with a knife to cut the next level off. Get out the iron and ironing board and put some white paper towel under the table cloth where the wax is and some over the wax stain and start ironing. The wax will melt under the iron’s heat and go into the paper towel. It seems to be a long time for repeating this process until the wax was all gone. DO NOT attempt to wipe away the stains that are wet or damp as this will spread the stain.
Gently brush at the stain spot with small brush or toothbrush. Put a few drops of CLEACE liquid detergent onto the stain, and rub it into the stain with your thumb and forefinger. Add a drop or two of water to the stain spot and briskly rub with brush or toothbrush on BOTH sides of the fabric, using circular motions. You may need to repeat these steps several times before the stain is completely gone.
Wash the garment following all care guidelines on the tag.
When cycle is completely finished, check the clothes carefully for any sign of the stain. If the stain remains, repeat the previous steps. NEVER dry clothes in a dryer if a stain remains as this will set the stain, which will then be nearly impossible to remove.
ALWAYS read the label on your garment to determine proper washing instructions.
It is generally a good idea to wash stained clothes separately from another laundry to avoid spreading the stain to other clothes.
If the stain is on a delicate fabric such as silk or wool, or if the garment is designated as dry-clean only, take the item to a professional cleaner. For help finding reputable cleaners in your area, contact us.
