Works for Me Wednesday

I had just gotten a new sweater and I moved a candle and spilled the wax on my sweater. I was sick about it. I had heard this tip and thought I'd try it.
It worked beautifully- not a spot left. If it ever happens to you try this- it really works!

Heat your clothes iron, just as if you were going to iron a shirt. Once it's warmed up, place a few paper towels on top of the candle wax stain. Place a few sheets around the stain, which will prevent scorching other areas. Now this is really simple, just iron the sheets of paper that are on top of the candle wax. The wax will liquefy and be absorbed by the paper towels.

As you iron the paper towels, the wax is absorbed into the sheets of paper. This looks like little spots of water or grease on the paper towel. Once you've seen these spots, you know the wax is coming out of your carpet or clothes.

Head on over to Shannons to get more great ideas!

I actually posted about this for last week's WFMW =) A brown paper bag works too in place of paper towels.
