To remove wax from a table cloth, scrape off the spilled wax with a dull knife and place the tablecloth between several sheets of kraft paper. Iron the spot until the wax is pulled onto the kraft paper. Dry clean any remaining oily spots.
Another method to remove wax from a table cloth is to put the cloth in the freezer for several days to dry the wax. Take off big chunks of the wax, place paper towels on both sides of the cloth and press the stain with an iron. Set liquid laundry detergent on the stain for a few minutes and wash in the hottest water that is safe for that fabric.
