How can I remove candle wax from a quilt?

by Grace

Candle wax spilled over on a quilt I use for a table cover. It has soaked completely through the quilt. Some also spilled onto the carpet. How can I remove it.

    Depending on the material of the quilt, use wax paper and an iron on the lowest setting. I would take it to the cleaners. The iron will work on the carpet.

    Scrape as much as you can from the quilt and rug. Heat or cold has always worked well for me. I've been able to remove wax from clothing by freezing the item and then pulling it off the fabric and scrubbing any residue with Dawn dish detergent.
