Default Chapstick melted on seat

Ok, I am at a loss as how to clean up this mess.


One hot day my daughter grabbed a very hot and liquefied Chapstick out of the center console and proceeded to let it drip down the entire seat back and bottom cushion.

I have no idea how to go about cleaning this up. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Put a paper towel or some thin towel you don't care about over the wax and the heat up a clothes iron on low and put the iron on the cloth and press down. Repeat until you can't get any more out of the seat (warmed wax will be soaked into your towel). If it's all gone, good. If there is some residual then get a product called De Solv It. It's a citrus based product that can get wax out. But I'd spray the De Solv It on a wet cloth and then use that on your seat - don't spray it right on the seat as it's concentrated and you may create a different problem.

Alright I cannot beg you enough to use this stuff. I got sap (yes tree sap) all over my sti seat and this took it right out! It has taken out old stains and anytime something happens now I have an extra bottle in the car and it gets it every time.

What you do is wash your hands and pump some this on your fingers, massage it into the portion of fabric that has the Chapstick. Don't be afraid to get it pretty wet because as this soaks in it breaks up the substance/stain. Then take a clean microfiber cloth and wipe it away. Repeat these steps until the Chapstick is completely gone. I promise this is your best bet and if I could I would give you my own bottle because I know how it feels!

Don't be scared haha if it gets tree sap out and a decent amount of it, Chapstick will be a breeze!
