Subject: Wax on textile

Wax on textile

From: Alan J. Hawk <alan.hawk>
Date: Monday, November 20, 2006
What is the best way to remove candle wax that has dripped onto a
textile.  We have physically removed the big chunks, but would
appreciate advice on how to remove the wax that has been absorbed
into the fibers.
