Actually I have a lot of red candles and I’m not really going to let them go to waste HOWEVER . . .
I’m not going to burn red candles on my good my good tablecloths and,
when I buy new candles they will be some pale color.
I used my favorite tablecloth for Christmas and New Year’s which comes from Holland and is colorfully cross-stitched.
A drop of red wax fell on it.
Before laundering I layered it between a cotton cloth (on the bottom) and a paper towel (on the top) and ironed the paper town with a hot iron.
All of the wax and much of the color was transferred to the cloth and towel.
Then I pretreated it for about 20-30 minutes before washing it in cold water in the washing machine. Most of the stain came out.
I’ll burn the red candles where they can’t become a permanent stain.
What’s you favorite candle color? (Mine is natural beeswax.) What’s your favorite candle scent? (Mine is lavender/lemon.)
