    This technique works great on carpets, etc. But if you can hold the material with candle drippings in your hands....

    1. Put garment in refrigerator for about 1 hour. This hardens the wax.

    2. Take garment out and begin to rub candle wax areas together. You will start to see the wax break into small pieces and fall off the garment.

    3. Wash garment.
