Have you ever had the unpleasant experience of spilling candle wax on your favorite tablecloth and not knowing how to remove it? Don't worry, there are several ways to remove candle wax from a tablecloth efficiently and without damaging the fabric.
The first thing you should do is cool the wax. You can do this by placing ice on the wax or using a hair dryer on a low setting to harden it. Once the wax has hardened, it is easier to remove.
Here are several options for removing wax from your tablecloth:
Use an ice scraper or credit card to gently scrape away the wax. Do it carefully so as not to damage the fabric of the tablecloth.
Place absorbent paper on top of the wax and use a hot plate on low, without steam, to heat the wax. The wax adheres to the paper and is easily removed.
If the tablecloth is made of wool or silk, you can use a damp sponge to remove the wax. With the sponge, gently rub the wax until it comes off.
In any case, it is important to be careful not to rub hard to avoid damaging the tissue. If the wax has left stains, you can use our Nº03 stain remover stick for delicate fabrics or our Nº04 Oxygen Booster for cotton, linen or mixed fibres.
Once you've removed the wax from the tablecloth, wash it as you normally would. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's washing instructions to avoid damaging the fabric. We recommend our Nº11 with organic lavender or our Nº13 for delicate fabrics.
We hope these tips help you remove candle wax from your tablecloth efficiently and without damaging the fabric. With a little patience and care, you will be able to enjoy your favorite tablecloth again, without problem.
