Solve Crayon/Candle Wax Stains At Home with Shout® Advanced Stain-Lifting Foam

Shout® Advanced Stain-Lifting Foam is the best product for this type of stain, but our other products will work as your next-best option.

  • Step 1. Cool it. Harden the wax with an ice cube.
  • Step 2. Scrape off the excess with the edge of a teaspoon or credit card.
  • Step 3. Check the label. Make sure your garment is colorfast and washable and says nothing about being “dry-clean only.” If the item meets both of those requirements, you’re ready for Step 4.
  • Step 4. Pretreat the stain with Shout® Advanced Stain-Lifting Foam or one of the other recommended products. Be sure to rub it in for deep penetration.
  • Step 5. Show some patience, but not too much. You should only wait 1-5 minutes before washing your stain in the warmest water your item recommends. It would be a bad idea for your clothes to let Shout® Advanced Stain-Lifting Foam dry before the wash.
