Try this: Take an ice cube and freeze the wax, scraping off as much as you can. Then take a paper towel, put it over the remaining wax stain, press a warm iron over the paper towel, the rest should melt into the paper towel. Wash as usual, putting some shout on the stain. Good luck! This works for me!

It worked like a charm! My 12 year old was playing with a candle and spilled in on the SLEEVE of her pajamas from hollister!


She was so worried it wouldn't come of and so was I especially cause it was on the sleeve!

Put my shirt in boiling water in the microwave and then I washed it with dawn dish liquid and it all came out of my 100% polyester top ,no stain at all. Awesome
