wax crayon on my dipes!


Somehow...probably that somehow has something to do with a two and a half year old...
somehow a wax crayon ended up in my dryer. I never use the dryer. except this time I was in a hurry. Well, now all my pockets, inserts, and fitted have yellow polka dots. not so cute.
please, please tell me there is some way to get melted wax crayon off. it is imbeded in the fabric. I even washed them on super hot and nothing budged. grrrrr.

Re: wax crayon on my dipes!

aaaaaaai...I'm no help, but that sucks! Maybe ironing with a clean piece of fabric/paper overtop...or boiling. Sorry I'm no help.

I know on walls you are supposed to use a hot hair dryer and a paper towel. On carpet I think it is a hot iron or a hot hair dryer.

I remember at church they used ice on the carpet floor from candles dripping????

Turn you iron on as hot as you dare, and lightly press with a towel or washcloth over them. The heat should melt the wax, and the towel will absorb it.
Hth!

Re: wax crayon on my dipes!

Hey... I think what everyone else said. Do like you would with removing wax from carpet. Some how I think if you were to google "removing wax from diapers " nothing would come up Though maybe try "removing wax from clothes" or something like that would yield something.
