Same as the chewing gum! Put it in the freezer or use an ice cube to get the fabric as still as possible, then pick or scrape off as much as you can. Place a paper towel on either side of the fabric. Using a warm iron, press on the paper towel over the wax stain. Replace the towels as often as needed to get all of the wax off the garment.
Apply laundry detergent to the stain let it set for 10 minutes then wash as usual.
Again, consider taking it immediately to the cleaners if it’s a pricy item!
