At the risk of sounding completely stupid, I am posting this. Anyone ever heard of Scentsy? Well, it's these candle wax warmer things where you put the wax in the top of them and it melts it and fills your house with whatever particular flavor you put in. Great in theory, but anyone in real life is probably going to at some point experience what I am about to tell you.
I have been paranoid lately since Gavin is climbing on things, that he is going to knock mine over and either hurt himself or spill wax on my couch and carpet. Well, the day will now never come...because I did it! I was carelessly putting something behind my chair (small house, no storage, I have to be creative) and it hit the cord (another feature I hate about it) to the Scentsy warmer. Wax was literally FLUNG at me and all over my chair and the wall. Luckily there was also a blanket behind the chair that prevented any wax from getting on my carpet.
I decided to google my options and found out a neat little trick of putting down a towel and ironing over that to transfer the wax. Surprise, surprise it worked, but naturally has left some nice oil stains on my couch. Google also said to try sprinkling corn starch over those, so we'll see what happens after that sits for awhile.
Way to go, Janelle, way to go. On the plus side, my chair does smell remarkably like a sticky cinnamon bun....
