Q: How do
you remove wax shoe polish from the cuffs of a pair of pants?
A: Test the
color of a garment before starting any stain removal procedure. Place the
garment on the spotting board over a white towel. Apply volatile dry solvent,
apply oily type paint remover and tamp the stain with spotting brush. A bone spatula
may be used to work the agents into the fabric. Flush the area with volatile
dry solvent. You may have to repeat this process until the staining substance
stops bleeding from the fabric.
Make sure you move the white towel to a
clear area to prevent the stain from transferring back to the fabric. If some
dye or color of the wax polish is still present, wet the area with water or
steam. Apply neutral synthetic detergent tamp and flush. If the stain remains
apply ammonia or protein formula, tamp, and flush. Flush the chemicals with
steam or water. Dry the garment completely.
