I used to work detailing cars and used a liquid degreaser to totally remove melted crayons from light colored upholstery. Try Penzoil degreaser from any Walmart or auto supply place. Put some in a spray bottle and spray on the cloth rub it in and keep rubbing it with a clean rag. Keep turning the rag so you are blotting what the liquid is dissolving. Wax is grease and this dissolves grease. hope this helps, nancy (01/23/2007)

The best idea is the wax paper with the iron. I have done it that way with no problems. If it is a lot of wax you might have to change the wax paper and repeat the steps, but this really works. (01/24/2007)

If the stain is wet, get the wax wet and rub it with the tip of your finger nail. At least it worked for me (08/19/2007)

I tried the tip with the hair dryer. The results are phenomenal! The candle wax stain came of in no time! (10/10/2007)
