How to remove beeswax from fabric

Sometimes accidents happen... a candle is bumped and melted beeswax rolls down the side and onto your favourite tablecloth. Or maybe you have taken your candles outside and the wind pushes the flame to one side and the candle drips... and there is no plate under the candle... oops!

No need to worry, beeswax can be removed from table cloth or any fabric. All you need is an iron, ironing board and clean paper towels.

Here are the steps:
1. Heat the iron to “cotton” level.

2. Place a sheet of paper on the ironing board and then place the fabric, (single layer of fabric) with beeswax, on top of the paper.

3. Place another sheet of paper on top the beeswax. So there is paper underneath the fabric and paper on top of the fabric/beeswax.

4. Iron the top layer of paper heating the paper and therefore the beeswax underneath.
Slowly move the iron over the area where the beeswax is. The beeswax will melt and be absorbed into the paper on top of the beeswax.
The bottom sheet of paper will absorb any beeswax that seeps through and protects your ironing board.

5. Lift the paper and check if all the beeswax has come off the fabric. You may need to do this a few times, move the paper around so there is a fresh piece on top to absorb more of the beeswax.

6. After a few times, there maybe a small bit of beeswax still on the fabric. To remove this put the table cloth in the wash.
