Removing Candle Wax Dye from Fabric

I had a doll's beige sleeve next to a red candle and the sleeve is now pink. Is there any way to remove the absorbed "wax" from the sleeve. This is not really wax, just the red coloring changing the coloring.

Place a dishcloth or a towel under the item of clothing or tablecloth, then put two paper towels over the top of the wax stain. Set an iron at a low to medium heat and iron over the area. The heated wax will melt again, and come away from the fabric, soaking instead into the paper towel.

If you're trying to target the red colouring it left behind, try a sodium carbonate peroxyhydrate cleaner like OxiClean. I've used the knock-offs at the 99c store with good results.

You can try using wax paper and an iron on low heat and it might lift it up. Good luck ! :)
