    Been there...you can take napkins, not to thick of a paper but not too thin, and a hair dryer on hi. Cut the napkins according to spot size plus an inch. But on one top and bottom...as running the dryer u will see the wax go into the paper. Stop the dryer and use another piece until it is gone...when you get as much out as possible...use Dawn dish soap on the spot with hot water and work out the rest. Just do the spot. and blot out with paper towel and let soak. If you already laundered this may not work...but you have nothing to lose....good luck ps some say ice...icing does not get out of fibers

    Place a layer of newspaper under the piece of clothing, then another layer over. Be sure to put paper towels between the fabric and the newspaper, then run a hot iron over the area and the heat will move the wax from the fabric to the paper towels and newspaper.
