How can I remove candle wax out of a tablecloth? I did not realize the candle holder had a crack in it and it leaked on my new tablecloth.
Thanks for the help!

Take brown paper bags from the grocery store; place the bags on each side of wax stain. Press the top bag with a warm iron, without using the steam, until the wax melts into the bags and away from your tablecloth. (06/18/2004)
Put an ice pack on it to freeze it. Remove as much of the frozen wax as possible. Any remaining wax can be removed by pressing the tablecloth lightly between 2 pieces of pressing paper or paper bag using a warm iron. (06/18/2004)
I would suggest not using the freezing method. Although it is proven to work, it can also make the wax even harder to remove. Use the hot ironing method; it's much easier, and also much more effective. (12/26/2005)

I have heard that putting a wax dripped object in the freezer will permit the wax to be flicked off. It's worth a try. It won't harm the item. (12/19/2006)
I had candle wax spill all over the top of my stove top. I took a paper towel and used low heat with my iron and it came right up. (12/20/2006)
