How To

How-To | Remove Wax

Dec 12, 2017

Burning candles to create ambiance or during a holiday celebration can be an important part of your traditions. If you get a little too carried away with the festivities, simply wax on, wax off with these easy steps, and have your fabric couches, clothes, and carpets clean again in no time!

Gather These Tools:

Sweater Comb, Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth, Iron, thick cardstock 

STEP 1:
Scrape Away

First, let the wax dry—it’s easier to treat! Place the item on a flat surface, and use the Sweater Comb or a dull butter knife to gently scrape away any large wax blobs, leaving only the bit of wax saturated in the yarns.

STEP 2:
Back It Up

Place pieces of thick card stock directly underneath the sweater where each wax stain is located. Be sure to use heavy paper—copy paper is not sturdy enough. If you have multiple wax spots, work with multiple smaller pieces.

STEP 3:
Sandwich It

Lay the Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth (or any simple cotton fabric) on top of the wax stain. If you have multiple wax spots, cut the cloth into multiple smaller pieces—you’ll want to have a clean cloth and cardstock for each wax spot to prevent redepositing any wax back on to the item. You should now have the wax stain sandwiched between the card stock and cotton cloth.

STEP 4:
Warm Up

The trick to lifting wax is a little bit of heat. Set the iron to a low heat setting with no steam. Lightly maneuver the iron on top of the cloth in a circular motion. Pull the cloth away, and the wax should be gone! Repeat as necessary using a clean cloth for each wax stain until desired results.
