One of the things about doing art is that it can be messy. Trust me, I do my best to eliminate the mess. And I always try to wear my apron. But occasionally, I just mess up. It happens.
A few weeks back I got wax from our Phoenician Batik Lesson all over my new black sweater. I won’t go into how it got splashed but lets just say I can be a little careless sometimes, especially when working furiously to get things ready for class, and I didn’t think first before testing to see if if the wax was ready and splash!
Now, I had wax all over the shoulder of my new sweater. But wax really isn’t hard to get out of most fabrics. Here’s the quick and simple solution.
How to Remove Wax from Fabric
Heat your iron. Get a piece of cloth or material you can throw away after. Place the scrap piece of cloth over the splattered area and then iron over that. When you do this, the wax melts into the cloth between and lifts the wax out of your new sweater, or whatever.
Note: It’s always the best idea to test first in an inconspicuous area. All fabrics will react differently.
It’s a really easy, simple solution- and it works!
