Try using a hair dryer on medium to loosen the wax. Just warm it up, don't
try to completely melt it. Once loosened, scrape it with a plastic scraper.
You will gets almost all it it out this way with patience. You can also
iron the garment USING A WOOL SETTING with an absorbent terry towel on both
sides of the garment. This will transfer a lot of the wax to the towels.
It may casue some of the wax to penetrate further into the wool so do this
at your discretion. If it is a different color (like red wax, white wool,
etc.) then a professional cleaning may be the only total answer.
