The sooner you can react to wax stains the easier it will be to remove them. Begin by filling a plastic bag with ice cubes. Place the bag directly onto the wax stain and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. This should help the wax to harden so that it can easily be scraped off with a butter knife.
Next, lay a paper bag directly over the wax stain. Preheat an iron to a warm or medium setting, once it is up to temperature, begin ironing the paper bag. You will notice that the wax begins absorbing into the material. You may need to repeat this process with fresh paper bags until you no longer see the wax stain.
