How do you get candle wax out of material?

Try placing some paper towels or news paper on the opposite side of material and iron it start warm and just work with it a little.. I have saved ,what I thought was, a wasted tablecloth this way. I also repaired a horrible mess in my carpet.

I have found that the best way is to place a sheet or two of blotting paper over the wax (not sure if that's what it's called in the US but the paper sold at stationers for blotting ink) and iron it with a medium hot iron and the wax will be absorbed by the blotting paper. You could probably use two or three layers of kitchen roll instead if you can't get blotting paper. JG, London, UK
