I've gotten wax on my best white satin sheets!!
How do I get it out?
get brown wrapping paper then an iron on low, put the brown paper on top and gently iron, some grease will come out on that one, do it repeatedly with fresh bits of the paper till it's all gone - or alternatively and more easily get a stain devil for wax.
I've heard ice to freeze it then break it off, but not sure it works.
Put the part with the wax on in boiling water. Keep moving it around and the wax should melt and float to the surface. Soak up the wax with a paper towel.
If there's any left iron it with the brown paper.
That's how I used to remove the wax when I did batiks.
She can't do that I don't think, with batik it doesn't matter if there's some slight grease staining, on white satin it'd show up.
However, scrape off as much as you can before, without pushing the wax purther into the fabric. Then follow the brown paper and iron directions. If any remains, then dab with a SMALL amount of denatured alcohol onto the stain and then sponge with water. The denatured alcohol is a great solvent, but is VERY flammable so don't get it anywhere neat the hot iron!!!!!!!
And, as a jock, I will deny ever knowing this if ever asked.
It's still easier to get a Stain Devil
I won't argue with that. :smile: But that alcohol is something many people have in a tool shed or garage.
I have a full set of Stain Devils cos I'm a dopey cow and I'm always spilling stuff
But how did you manage to get wax on satin sheets in the first place ?
Sounds like it would be interesting.
Enquiring minds want to know...
well......would you belive I'm breaking in a new sub who is a touch skittish.....
I think you're very rude and not a very good friend if you're breaking a sub in your friends house never mind on her expensive sheets. Disgusting...
OK, here's what you do...
Get some scissors and cut the waxed portion of the white satin sheets out. You will have removed all of the wax. Problem solved. :alcoholic:
Oh Simcha, that is exactly what I thought, a small little hole oh who cares. LOL
but I suggest freezing it breaking out the hard stuff then doing the Iron on low and brown bag. then the final touch up of the stain devil.
all better now, and the photos are worth it.
OMG don't listen to me, I can't read tonight. Sorry for the mis-accusation..
A simple hairdryer works good too, it pushes the wax through to the other side and out completly. It just takes some patience, it doesn`t happen all of a sudden, it`s slow but it works.
It's ok Sweets...I've just destroyed $300 worth the sheets!
Not fit for anything but the dust bin now..oh well, thanks every one for the tips..will have to go and buy some more.
