The other night we had no electricity and after the candle had been burning for awhile, I lifted it and the wax spilled on my new microfiber barco lounger.

It looked black and like it was burnt (my chairs are a tan.)

I used the iron on low with paper towels and it completely took off the wax. I then did the ice water with dish soap.

Amazing! It looks like nothing happened. I am so pleased.

Has anyone ever noticed that once a candle has burned completed out it is very difficult to get the residual candle out. I was taught a trick by a, believe it or not, candle salesperson and it works like a charm. Put the candle in the freezer. I normally forget about it until the next day. When you take it out, immediately thrust is down upon your hand and the candle will release. I am about to go downstairs and either put ice packs or frozen votice/tea light holders ontop of the wax on my brand new microfiber. I don't expect it to come right up, however someone told me to do this and when the wax hardens, gently take and ice-pick (a bit leery of that so I may just hit it a couple of times with a butter knife and gently try to get the remaining residue off with some type of gentle plastic. I will tell you all how it goes. Wish me luck. Karen

How to Get Candlewax Off of Microfiber

I brought a brand new red microfiber couch. Within a week someone spilled dark purple candlewax all over it. I used four paper towels, and a warm iron on low. I placed the towels over the spots, and held the iron over the towels. the wax started coming off instantly onto the papertowels. i continued until i got as much wax off as possible. the couch was left with dark purple stains. Then I used ice water and dish soap on a washcloth to spot clean all the spots. I rinsed with a clean towel with only ice water. I blotted it dry and then waited for it to dry. once dry -i repeated the process several more times until all the spots were gone. It looks as good as new.

Candle Wax on Microfiber 02/14/2006
I've never tried it on Micorfiber, but the absolute best way I've found to clean candle wax is with an iron and a paper bag.

Tear your paper bag into flat brown paper sheets. After you heat up your iron, lay a paper bag sheet over the spot with the wax, and iron it. The heat should melt the wax, and it will absorb into the brown paper. When one spot is saturated, move it to another spot....continue as should clear it right out.

Editor's Note: This should work but make sure your iron is on a low temperature and put several thicknesses of paper or paper towels between the iron and the fabric to make sure you don't burn the microfiber. Also, it's a good idea to scrape as much wax off as possible before you do this using a plastic spatula or a very dull blade so as not to cut the fabric.
