Cleaning Paraffin Wax Spills on Carpet, Fabric or Floors

  1. Scrape off  the solidified paraffin .
  2. Use a hair dryer or an iron (on top of paper towels) to melt the remaining paraffin, and then remove the melted paraffin up with paper towels.
  3. Use a wax- or paraffin-removing solution . Check fabric care instructions first. If possible, put the item in the washing machine to remove any remaining oil. Dry cleaning solutions and spot removers also work for some items.
  4. For nonporous surfaces, first remove any pieces of solidified paraffin. Then use an all-purpose cleaner. Read the cleaner’s instructions before using.
