“The Stain Wizard” responds to his November letter (part 2) about removing wax

Dear Stain Wizard,

A customer brought in a dark blue sweatshirt. It had thick candle wax over the front. I want to tell you what I did to easily remove the wax!

Removing wax… the before

Step 1 – In a clean bucket, 2 gallons of 125-130 degree water. (You can use your steam gun to help heat the water). Add 5 oz. of InkGo.
Step 2 – Soak overnight. The wax will start to float to the surface, almost immediately.
Step 3 – After rinsing and drying…dry clean in normal cycle.
