    Default getting candle wax out of suede couch

    do any of you domestic goddesses know how i can get melted candle wax out of a brown suede couch?!

    my BIL accidentally dribbled candlewax onto our couch and it's not sitting on top in a nice little pile that i can scrape off, it's like a smear that's melted into the actual fabric of the couch!!! arrgghhh is there anything i can do?

    Get some news paper or even better, baking paper & your iron.

    Put your iron on a low heat & put paper over the wax, iron over & over again over the wax & it should melt & adhere to the baking/news paper.

    Dont let the iron touch your lounge though. You can also use a tea towel, i used it to get candle wax out of carpet.

    Good luck

    I would try an iron on a low temp and a greas proof paper of the top of the wax, and just rub it over the wax to see if worming it up will make it easyerer to scrape off... The the other thing i would give a go is stuff called GOOREMOVER its made by orange i think there called...Its dirived from orange oil and its all natural,its in a little spay botel in the cleaning isle in safeway BRIGHT ORANGE cabt miss it iv heard its amazing!!! And i am a LOVER of there carpet spot cleaner

    I'd also try the iron Adding any other sprays or cleaners or remove the wax, but leave marks of their own.
