wax removal

hey guys,
so here it goes was working on my wife's car and she decided to take my truck to do some shopping and bought some candles in glass jars with lids and places them on my back seat then continued shopping at other stores then returned home, when she got home i went to help unload and nearly had heart attack, one of the candles tipped over and melted onto my seat!!! my interior is the tan cloth and now has a softball size stain. is there any way to remove the wax without ruining the cloth? any help or suggestions would be much appreciated

When I was dating my wife we accidentally knocked over (details of how are not important) a red candle that was lit and it spilled red wax all over her apartments tan carpet. We got most of it out by using a roll of paper towels and and iron. Take 2-3 paper towels and put it over the spill. Take your iron and let it on a low to medium heat and run it over the paper towels. The iron will re-melt thewax and the paper towels will soak it up. Change your paper towel each time you go over it as not to spread the wax you soaked up.

Good luck

reminds me of how myself and my wife broke a bed frame on the 4th of July weekend two years ago....called around for half an hour and found the only place in town that was open. then when we went in to pick it up they said "oh, you must be the ones who called".....I was smiling but my wife was not!
