Step 1: Gather Your Supplies and Tools

Gather Your Supplies and ToolsYou cannot fight a battle without your weapons, right? So, gather all you need to get rid of the wax from your clothes in your laundry room. Also, this is going to be easier than a battle.

The supplies you need include,

  • Wax stained clothes
  • Paper towels or blotting paper
  • Ice cubes
  • A spoon, knife, or scrapper
  • An iron
  • A bucket
  • Hot water
  • Stain-removing detergent
  • A washing machine
  • A color-safe bleach

Step 2: Let the Wax Dry

Once you are done with collecting the equipment you need, it is time to begin your task. When the wax is soft and warm, do not do anything but wait for it to dry. Wax is better removed when it is dry as it is not messy or sticky.

While you can let it dry by itself, we suggest you get some ice cubes and rub them on the wax. It will help you save time. Also, you can simply place the clothes in the freezer for the wax to dry completely in no time.

Step 3: Scrap Off the Wax from the Clothes

Scrap Off the Wax from the ClothesWe dried the wax so that we could scrap it off and remove the maximum wax from the clothes. Grab your scrapping tool and start scratching the wax with it. Also, be gentle as you do not want to ruin the clothes.

Although using a dull knife like a butter knife or spoon does the job well, you can also use your ID or credit card as it is more gentle as compared to the knife. Your choice of scrapper depends upon the material you spilled the wax on.

Step 4: Melt the Wax with an Iron

Scrapping helps in removing the excessive wax that is stuck to the outer and inner layers of the clothes. You need more effort to remove the wax that is stuck in between the fibers of the clothes.

For this, place a paper towel or blotting paper on the counter, keep the wax-stained area of the clothes on it, and cover it with another paper towel or blotting paper.

Now, take your iron, turn it on on low to medium heat, and keep on the paper towel covering the stain. Wait for a few seconds. The wax will melt, move out of the fibers, and get on the paper towel.

Change the stained paper towel with a fresh piece and repeat the process until most of the wax is removed.

Step 5: Use a Laundry Stain Remover

Use a Laundry Stain RemoverIf you feel like some residues of the wax are still left in the clothes, take your wax-clearing regimen one step higher. For this, apply a laundry stain remover or detergent to the wax-stained area.

Not only will it help in removing the wax, but it will also remove the stains of the wax.

Step 6: Soak the Clothes in Warm Water

After applying the stain remover, grab your bucket and fill it with hot water. Put the clothes in the bucket and wait for 30 to 60 minutes.

Also, be careful that the water is not too hot as it might burn the clothes.

Step 7: Wash the Clothes in the Machine

Wash the Clothes in the MachineWe are almost done with removing the wax from the clothes in the 6 steps we discussed earlier. Now steps 7 and 8 are additional steps to make your clothes as good as new.

Put some detergent in the washing machine, set it to a deep or heavy cleaning option, put the clothes in it, add a color-safe oxygen bleach, and let the machine do its job.

Furthermore, consider hand-washing the clothes if they are not machine-friendly.

Step 8: Let the Clothes Dry

When the machine rings a bell, remove your clothes from it, and hang them to dry. Once the clothes are dry, check them thoroughly to see if there is any stain left behind. Most likely, there will be no stain.

However, if you see any stain, apply a stain-removing agent in that area and wash it again.

How can you Avoid Waxing from Staining the Clothes?

How can you Avoid Waxing from Staining the Clothes?Removing hair removal wax out of the clothes might not be difficult, but it is time-consuming for sure. Therefore, we advise you to avoid getting it on the clothes in the first place.

Here are a few tips for you.

1. Take Extra Care While Waxing

Do not wax in your bedroom or living room. Rather choose your bathroom for waxing where there are no sheets for you to spill the wax on. Additionally, ask your waxing expert to be more careful about staining your clothes if you are getting waxed at a salon.

2. Wear Old Clothes

As staining your favorite clothes can be a major concern, do not wear them when you go for a waxing session. Choose an old pair of T-shirt and shorts. Moreover, you can use a separate towel for waxing as well. In this way, you will not be much worried even if the wax is spilled.

3. Try an Alternative Hair Removal Method
