I have a tablecloth with wax stains. I got the wax off but the red stain is still there. Anyone have any ideas how to get it off?
I got red wax on my white tablecloth last night. I was able to get all the wax off, but it left a nasty red stain. I haven't done anything yet because if it fails, I may lose the cloth. Any ideas?
Has anyone had any luck with pouring boiling water through this type of stain? It worked on a red candle stain on my carpet.
I got the stain out of the tablecloth. I put a paper towel over the stain with a piece of waxed paper over that. I then took a hot iron to it with no steam. It still left a little red there so I put the whole cloth in water with OxiClean for almost 24 hours. I came home from work today and the stain was gone!!! It is now in washing machine.
Glad to hear you found a solution, thanks for posting it.
if all else fails, dye the whole thing red and use it in February and December
I first used the tried & true method of getting the wax off with an iron and brown paper bag - worked great but left the red dye stain. I then put it in a pot of hot water with a mix of my mothers stain removal recipe - 2:1 chlorox & dishwasher soap powder. The usual amount is: 1 cup chlorox to 1/2 cup soap goes in a washer almost half full. works great on almost all stains
