How to Get Candle Wax out of Jeans?

To remove candle wax from jeans, follow these steps:

1. **Freezing Method:**
- Place the jeans in a plastic bag and seal it.
- Put the bag in the freezer for a few hours until the wax becomes hard.
- Remove the jeans from the freezer and break off the frozen wax with a dull knife or your fingernail.

2. **Ironing Method:**
- Lay the jeans on a flat surface with the wax stain facing up.
- Place a clean, absorbent cloth (like a paper towel) over the wax.
- Use a warm iron on a low setting to gently heat the cloth. The heat will melt the wax, and the cloth will absorb it.

3. **Scraping Method:**
- Scrape off excess wax using a plastic card or the edge of a spoon. Be gentle to avoid damaging the fabric.

4. **Washing:**
- Pre-treat the remaining wax stain with a small amount of dish soap or laundry detergent.
- Wash the jeans in cold water. Check the stain before drying; if any wax remains, repeat the process.

5. **Absorbent Powder Method:**
- Sprinkle an absorbent powder (like baking soda or cornstarch) on the wax stain.
- Let it sit for a few hours or overnight to absorb the wax.
- Brush or shake off the powder, and then launder as usual.

Remember to check the care label on your jeans and follow any specific instructions provided by the manufacturer.
