We've been talking a lot about candles. We all love them, but, boy do we hate wax on our table clothes. We get the dripless candles, but if it's crocked in the holder, or there's a draft---we're bound to get a mess. You may know this already, but here's how to get wax out of a table cloth.

With a regular table knife or butter knife, scrape the wax off as best you can. Get a paper shopping bag and cut pieces for both the top and the bottom of the cloth. Iron the spot(covered on each side with the paper) with a fairly hot iron, moving the pieces of paper each time to soak up the wax. Keep going until no more wax shows on the paper. Use your trusty stain remover on the oil stain that is left. We use K2 dry cleaning powder, but any grease remover will do. Launder as usual. Don't put your table cloth in the dryer if the wax stain still shows. Hang it dry and use the grease remover on it again and relaunder. Good luck and light 'em up!

Candle Care from CAPERS

We have the candles, that is for sure. And you are buying them....GREAT! Now what. The first time you burn that new candle, make sure you have plenty of time to train your candle. If the wick is really long, trim it and then light and let burn for a couple of hours or until the wax is pooled all the way out to the edge. Otherwise, the next time you burn it, the flame will just burn the size of the first burn following the wick down the middle...wasting all the outer wax. Also, keep the wick trimmed to a quarter inch to keep it from smoking. Our tapers are dripless, but any candle will drip in a draft. Keep your candles out of the way of heating vents or the door. And of course, never leave a candle burning unattended! A burning candle is a warm touch. Enjoy. Tomorrow...getting wax out of your table cloth.
