I had this happen to me....a nice beautiful white doily with red candle wax. It basically ruined it. I tried using a hot iron (to melt the wax) then tried to bleach it. It helped a little but my doily fell apart. If you come across a good idea, please share it with me...good luck and Merry Christmas.

Hot iron and a brown paper bag to absorb the oils and the waxes AFTER you place it in the freezer and freeze it as hard as you can get it and crack the wax off the fibers....

Hey try this one; run under some hot or warm water. And gradually work off the doily.
