Remove stubborn crayon or candle wax from your clothes without damaging the fabric by using these helpful tips.

Step 1: Scrape the wax
Start by using a dull knife or spoon to remove as much wax as possible.

Step 2: Blot with rubbing alcohol
Blot the area with rubbing alcohol, or your favorite solvent cleaner. Finish by washing according to fabric label instructions.

Step 3: Cover with towel and iron
Cover the area with a kitchen towel, then place an iron set on low heat on top. The towel will absorb the wax.

A hair dryer can be used if an iron is not available.

Step 4: Apply liquid detergent
Apply a heavy-duty liquid detergent to pre-treat the area. Let the detergent set. Then wash the clothing in the hottest water appropriate for that fabric.

Step 5: Spray with WD-40
Spray the waxed area with WD-40. Let it sit for a couple of minutes, then spray the other side for best results. With a little elbow grease, the stain and wax will be removed.
