Dear Home Ec 101,
I accidentally spilled some candle wax on my favorite pair of jeans. What should I do to get it out?
This is actually a fairly simple fix. First, scrape off any excess with a butter knife. Then all you need to do is take a warm iron and some paper grocery sacks and iron it. Keep moving the sack around so it absorbs the wax. If there’s any left, just pre-treat the stain with some Goo Gone or Goof Off and wash as you normally would. Easy peasy!
