How to Remove Candle Wax Stains

Removing Wax from Felt

­­Follow these steps to remove candle wax stains from felt:

  • Freeze to harden the wax.
  • Very carefully scrape the residue, taking care not to shred the felt fibers.
  • If any residue remains, try brushing gently with a stiff-bristled brush.
  • In extreme cases, use a razor blade to gently scrape the excess. Use this as a last resort as it will damage some of the fibers.
