Welcome To The 162nd Masterpiece Monday!


Why am I showing you a picture of a towel?


Have you ever wondered how to remove melted wax?  I've seen this technique done for carpet and googled around and found out that the same technique works for terry cloth.  I wanted to see how easily it worked and it was easy and fast.  And best of all , I didn't have to throw away a perfectly nice towel! 


If you have any large bits of wax you can first remove them by freezing the wax with an ice cube, or I just put my towel in a plastic bag in in the freezer for several hours.

 Once the wax is frozen, you can gently scrape it off with a spoon or butter knife. 

To remove the remaining wax residue, cover the wax with butcher paper and iron. I used the high/dry setting. Lift the paper and repeat on a fresh section of paper until all of the wax is gone. 

Lastly,  toss your towel in the washer.
