Before you attempt to scoop up the candle wax, let it harden first. Trying to remove hot candle wax from fabric will more likely embed the wax deeper into the fibers of the fabric, making it more difficult to remove, if you do not apply the right technique.

Never place any stains in a dryer until you are sure the stain has been removed. Here's some effective tips to remove candle wax from fabric:

Scrape and iron to absorb the wax

  • 1. Once the wax is solid (you can put the item in the refrigerator or freezer if you'd like), remove it by scraping it off the fabric using a flat tool like a putty knife, spatula or butter knife. In many instances all you need to do is bend the fabric at the very edge of the wax and you can peel the whole piece of wax right off the fabric instantly.
  • 2. Place the fabric on something absorbent UNDER the fabric. Make sure to select an item that will not burn or colour bleed.
