Will candle wax come out of clothes?
Ah, the joy of discovering that candle wax has made its way onto your favorite shirt or pair of jeans! Although it can be a bit of a headache to remove, with some patience and the right tools you should have no problem getting the wax out.
You'll want to start by scraping off as much of the wax as possible with a butter knife or something similar. If there's still a lot of wax left, try using an ice cube over the top. This will help to harden the wax so it can be removed more easily. You can also use a hair dryer on its lowest setting to warm up the wax and make it soft enough for removal.
Once you've managed to get most of the wax off, you'll need to treat what's left behind. Start by testing an inconspicuous area on the fabric with some rubbing alcohol – this should help break down whatever residue is left over from the wax. Then blot away any remaining stains with a white cloth and cold water.
And now comes the fun part: ironing! You'll want to place a clean piece of cotton fabric overtop your clothing item and turn your iron onto its lowest heat setting (make sure not to put it on steam!). Place your iron directly over the stained area for about 10-15 seconds, then lift and see if anything has transferred onto the cloth underneath – if so, repeat until all signs of stain are gone!
So there you have it: removing candle wax from clothes doesn't have to be frustrating or time-consuming. Just remember these simple steps and you'll be back in stylish shape in no time!
