Dear Katie, A New Blog Feature,Remove Candle Wax

Many of you know that I have a website called Go Ask Katie. It was suggested to me recently that I should include some of my questions and answers here at Katherine's Corner too. So after giving it some thought I decided to start adding Dear Katie questions here once in a while. If you enjoy it then I will continue. It was difficult to select the first question. But, I decided on this one from the  House and Home Category 
 If you'd like to ask a question Click Here to be redirected to my website.

Dear Katie, We had a romantic candle light dinner last night. But candle wax dripped on my table cloth can you help?

Thanks Kathy

Dear Kathy, I know this may sound a bit silly. But, put the tablecloth in the freezer. The wax will freeze and it'll be easier to remove.

After a few hours. Take the tablecloth out of the freezer and using a plastic spoon or another dull utensil gently begin to scrape away the frozen wax. It will most likely just start to crumble.

If some wax still remains you will do the opposite of freezing. Heat your iron to medium high setting and place a clean dry cloth on top of the wax ( a cloth you can throw away afterward). Place the cloth on top of the wax and gently run the iron over the the cloth moving the cloth a bit with each pass until the wax is soaked into the cloth. Be careful not to transfer the wax back onto the cloth.

Then spray with a spot remover and wash normally. This should work.

I hope you'll continue to have many romantic evenings, Katie

So sending it to the dry cleaners and paying high fees isn't the only way to remove wax?

Augh! I got candle wax on my mirror after blowing a candle out too forcefully. Any idea how to remove that?
