Spotting – Melted Wax
The following will work for melted wax from candles, crayons, and paraffin.
- – Remove as much excess wax as you can with a bone scraper and vacuum thoroughly
- – Place absorbent paper (brown paper bag) over the wax. Terry cloth is also effective
- – Place an iron on top of the paper and melt the wax onto paper. Never put the iron above ‘wool’ setting as this will damage fibers
- – As wax melts into the paper, slowly move the paper to a clean spot
- – Continue till no more wax is absorbed into the paper
- – Apply Solvent Clean to the spot and dry vacuum
- – If a little color or residue is left, apply Avenge Spotter
- – Rinse and extract
- – Neutralize with Power Rinse
- – Dry quickly
NOTE: This is the most efficient and effective way to remove most wax stains; however, occasionally you may need to use a stronger solvent like All Solv in the final steps of removal.
