crayon from some kinds of fabrics. Check out our "Bottled

TIPS FOR REMOVING WAX
& CRAYONS: With a dull knife or the edge of
a spoon, scrape away as much of the wax or crayon as possible.
Vacuum up the bits of wax that you were able to loosen. This
step alone may take several attempts. Next, place a clean absorbent
towel over the stain and press with a warm iron. The heat will
melt the wax and the absorbent towel will soak up the melted
wax. Sponge final traces of the stain with a cleaning fluid.
A more effective method if the fabric can withstand the heat
is to use a steam iron and, without touching the iron to the
carpet, jet hot steam onto the wax, then quickly absorb the melted
wax with a clean white towel.
- If the wax is colored additional steps may need to be taken
in order to remove the coloring. Sponge it with alcohol* diluted
with two parts of water. Rinse or sponge lightly with water.
