How to remove a wax stain

15 mins | Easy | 5 STEPS

Candles can set a relaxing mood, but dripping wax can also stain your clothes and linens!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Step

Let wax dry

It’ll be easier to remove when it’s no longer hot.

Step

Scrape with butter knife

Softly scrape off as much wax as you can.

Step

Use brown paper bags

Place a plain paper bag on an ironing board. Put the wax stained area on top of the brown paper bag and then place a second bag on top

Step

Iron on lowest setting

Use your iron in a circular motion until the wax melts onto the bag.

Step

Repeat until complete

A dark spot on the bag will indicate when the wax is being absorbed. When you see this, move the bags to a fresh section and repeat until no wax is left.
