Candle Wax Removal from your Carpets, Brick Fireplaces, Garments, Votive Cups and Glass On a Wall, Counter Tops or even Down the Drain. Velvet

 

The Brown Paper Bag and Iron method does seem to work very well on fabric and carpets as we get hundreds of people telling us that they used the method successfully. Removing from a wall or fireplace is a bit more difficult but readers have suggested steam irons, hair driers and hot air blowers, also propane torches (Caution), and solvents. Freezing can work too, as can using Dry Cleaning Fluid. Good Luck.

- Important warning - Caution too much heat can damage your carpet or garment !! 

Candle Wax Removal from Carpets. After reading everyone's ideas about using a hot iron and the steam from the iron, it occurred to me that I had a steamer that I had acquired to remove wallpaper. This worked great the steam instantly melted the wax and a paper towel soaked it right up ! -- Beth Kramer Lakewood, Colorado

Wax on Carpet. Some ice in a small pan and place it on top of the wax to make it brittle, then after breaking it up and getting rid of the lumps use the brown paper bag and the iron trick. It worked for me. Mehri Mehmoun


Candle Wax I just tried the hot iron, paper towel suggestion...WOW. I just saved my shirt and jeans. My late wife would be proud of me. THANKS!!! -- WoodCarver98

Q: Candle Wax Stains.  The best way to get rid of stains is not to get them in the first place, there are a few simple ways to avoid them:
1. Buy better candles, cheap candles have lots of additives in them that cause them to stain worse, try a candle that is nothing but paraffin wax, scent, color, and steric acid (the acid helps the candle wax burn away so there is little to no dripping.) 
2. Even dripless candles drip if there is a draft near where they are burning, make sure they are not near any open windows, fans, or heater vents. 
3. Make sure that the candle holder is big enough to hold any spillovers. 
4. Never blow out your candles, use a snuffer, if you don't have one a shot glass or juice glass over the wick until the flame is out works great. and 
5. if you have just put a candle out don't move it until the wax has solidified again. -- Hope this helps - BoBoTiger (niki nance)

Q: Candle Wax Removal -- Most carpets are made of nylon and heat melts nylon and other fibers. Believe me I used an electric iron and cloth --- melted my inlayed carpet in the kitchen. I purchased "GOOF OFF" which acts like WD40 . But have not needed it yet. Chaz --  Reply

A: Candle Wax Removal To anyone interested: After reading about using an iron to get candle wax out of carpet, I had to give it a shot. I had a puddle of green wax, about 4x4 inches, and soaked into beige carpet. I laid a very absorbent (Scott brand) paper towel down over the stain area. I set my iron to it's highest setting, and without touching the paper towel, hovered the iron less than an inch away and steamed through the paper towel. Using a putty knife, I pressed the paper towel against the stain, and it would soak it up. I repeated this process MANY times until eventually all of the wax was soaked into the paper towel, and there I had my carpet back to normal! Hope this helps answer.. Yes, the iron trick works! -John Darst-

A: How to Remove Candle Wax    I spilt a SERIOUS amount of candle wax on the carpet of my apartment. I would've had to pay hundreds of dollars to replace it until I heard about a great tool.

Candlewax on Velvet

Q: Remove candle wax from blue velvet dress. What's the best way to remove candle wax from my daughter's blue velvet dress? Thanks. -- Reply (Teresa Vereen) (Ref:0640)

A: Ref.0640 Hi! After seeing suggestions re ironing over a candle wax stain with paper bag in between: It worked! It took lots of red candle wax off my good black velvet dress, instantly, leaving no trace. Now I wish I had saved all the table cloths, etc. that were "ruined" with candle wax spills. I don't see why it wouldn't work with any fabric, including berber carpets. And with care, wouldn't it also work on a table? You'd just have to be careful while wielding the iron!

Answer 1 : I know that candle wax can be dissolved in carbon tetrachloride, however it is toxic and should not be used indoors, methyl alcohol is also supposed to dissolve wax so perhaps rubbing alcohol will work.-- Davina Martin

Feedback on on Answer 1: Getting wax off counter tops. Davina Martin suggested that rubbing alcohol might work to take spilled wax off of counter tops. I tried it, it works like a charm. I poured a little directly on the wax (after I'd chipped off most of it and there was a thin film of it left) and wiped it with paper towel. It came right off with not a lot of effort. Thx much to Davina and qznaz.info for the help. Now I'm going to try getting the wax out of my carpet, using two methods I read about on qznaz.info also. -- C T Comment

A: A helpful reader has suggested that dry cleaning fluid should dissolve candle wax. "Dabitoff" is the proprietary name for a suitable domestic cleaning product-- www.qznaz.com


Candlewax in Drain

The best way is mechanical removal; disassemble the trap underneath the sink and remove the wax. Scrape it out or melt it; you can pour boiling water into the trap or use a heat gun or steam source, but if you do use hihg temperature methods try not to damage the trap. Alternatively a good plumber's suppliers will sell you a solvent but do read the instructions particularly the safety section - Ed

Q: Candle Wax in Sink. Have candle making wax in kitchen sink. Help can't get water to go down at all  -- Kentucky Chat Group  --  Reply 

A: Wax Down Drain. Regarding the question with the heading "Candle Wax Clogged Drain of wash basin in bath." We had this problem last night, and looked at your site for suggestions. The solution you recommended was mechanical removal, but the wax was too far down for us to do that without taking apart the drain.

What we did was boil a huge pot full of water, then dump the scalding water down the drain. It drained very slowly at first (as before), but by the time we had poured the whole pot down the drain had completely cleared (presumably by melting the wax). We continued to flush with hot tap water for a while, to make sure the wax didn't collect elsewhere in the system. Thanks for collecting answers on your site! -- Jonathan Aldrich

Garments and Fabric

Q: Candle Wax removal from clothes. Be sure to put a towel or hot pad between the legs if removing from pant legs. The brown paper bag/iron suggestion worked like magic. The steam heat from the iron transfers the wax from the garment to the paper. I did not put any pressure from the iron onto the paper. Just held it slightly above it. -- J L 27/12/09

Q: Wax. How do you remove melted wax from clothing? -- "dmiller g" Reply  (Ref:0020)

A: If you will lay a brown paper bag over the garment before you iron over it then keep moving the bag around it will absorb the wax -- Magand

A: Candle wax can be dissolved in dry cleaning fluid however it is toxic and should not be used indoors unless there is very good ventilation. Placing a garment in the freezer or applying ice can make the wax brittle and it can then be broken up. Please give us feedback on this one as it is a frequently asked question. Regards -- AK

A: One way to get rid of this it to get a cloth, place it on the wax, put the hot iron on top of it, wait till it melts, remove the iron, wait till its cool again and lift the cloth off. It should remove most of the wax.

A: To remove candle wax from clothing: place a paper towel over the wax then place a warm iron on the paper towel - this melts the wax which gets soaked into the towel....voila! - Why

Candlewax in Glass Votive Containers

Q: Melted wax. how can I remove melted wax from the bottom of votive cups without scratching or breaking the fragile glass which is a special gift -- Julie Johnson Reply (Ref:0165)

Answer#1: How to remove candle wax from glass votive containers Place the glass candle holder in the freezer for a few hours (2-3 hrs at least) then take them out and use a butter knife and "pop" out the old wax. Works for me every time. Then if you want to, wash the holders in really hot soapy water to clean and re-use them again. --  ITSRISS  Comment

Answer#2: How to remove Candlewax from Glass Votive Containers A chandler's tip (used to clean equipment)...

1.Take a disposable aluminum pie tin that does not contain any holes (check for holes by first filling with water, then dry out THOROUGHLY before proceeding to the next step).

2. Preheat your oven to 175-200 degrees. No hotter, as wax is flammable at high temps!

3. Place the aluminum pie tin inside a deep, glass baking dish to catch any possible wax spills. (You do not want to spill any wax inside your oven when using this technique, as it will smoke and catch fire later at higher temps).

4. Place your votive containers upside down inside aluminum pie tin, so that as wax melts, it will drain into the pie tin.

5. Place in oven, and check every 20 minutes. When wax has liquified and drained into pie tin, remove from oven.

6. Glasses will be hot! Pick up with a paper towel to prevent burned fingers, and wipe glass thoroughly with paper towels to absorb any residue wax. If wax has spilled into glass baking dish, wipe with paper towels while it is still hot.

7. If wax has been removed, but a light waxy film remains, wash votive glasses in hot water or run through dishwasher. 

8. Let wax cool and solidify inside pie tin. When completely cool, throw away. The best tip of all is a preventative one. Spray a light coating of vegetable cooking spray inside votive glasses before inserting votive candles. Melted candles will slide out easily later! -- Fawn Martin Rubedo Candles

Answer#3: If you put water in the glass then it is possible to SLOWLY heat it up in a microwave oven to a temperature that would soften or perhaps even melt the wax. If there is gold patterning on the glass do not microwave. -- Patience Chan Hong Kong

Answer#4: Dry Cleaning fluid, if you can get it, dissolves candle wax. www.qznaz.com

Answer#5: Candle Wax in Votive Cups Hope you were able to get the wax out of your votive cups. A prevention hint--next time put a small amount of water in the bottom of the votive cup and then place the candle in it. The water will keep the wax from sticking and the candle remains will come out easily. -- Annette Robertson

Answer#6: Removing Candle Wax From Glass Holder   In answer to cleaning candle wax out of Glass Votive cups or any glass candle holder. If you heat water ( in the tap if it gets hot enough ) to just before boiling you can A: set the container in the water and put a little in the holder. Take the container out of the water ( carefully the water WILL burn you) the melted candle wax will slide right out. Do not let water in holder cool down, dump water out of it before attempting to slide out wax.  -- Hot Marine Girl 99   Comment

Answer#7: Wax Rremoval from Votive. Found easier way, prior to use, so thought I'd let you know! Place Dawn, Joy, etc, in bottom of votive, prior to use. Afterwards left over wax just pops out and you can wash votive in dishwasher. Hope this helps! Leah -- Leah Barwick.

Answer#8: How to remove candle wax from glass votive containers Place the candle holders in the freezer for a few hours (2-3 hrs at least) then take them out and use a butter knife and "pop" out the old wax.

A: Removing Candle Wax From Deep Containers

Warm to hot water
Marseilles soap (liquid)
3M scouring pad
Length of bent wire
15 minutes patience

Fill the container with the warm to hot water, and add a generous dash of the magical Marseilles soap. Scour gently with the 3m pad, and if it gets stuck at the bottom of an an awkward hole, extract it with the bent wire. This worked well for me with a deep narrow vase that had been used as a candle holder. Where did I get the idea from? The local pharmacy in Bellac, France who helped me get all four fingers unglued from super glue - with said magical Marseilles soap. If you can't obtain it in your country, come to France and buy some! -- Anon in France
