Unfortunately, Frosty suffered a serious head injury...he will be out of commission---oh, say, for about ten months??---for some time...(anyone know how to get dried candle wax off a velvety-feeling shower curtain?? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?)

Oh man, there is something that will take wax out but I'll be damnned if I can remember what it is. If it comes to me, I'll let you know...looks like frosty got caught in a drive by shooting.

Hmmm... about the only thing I can think of is maybe finding a way to freeze it? That makes candle wax brittle & it might just flake off? I know that to get my finished votives out of the holders, Yankee Candle suggests popping them in the freezer for about 24 hours. The remaining wax contracts & just pops right out. Is it still cold enough outside that it would freeze?

I second Dawn, pop your shower curtain into your freezer for an hour or so, and it should just kinda peel off.
as for Frosty... did you give him his last rights??

Yep, I only know to freeze it....I've also heard, though, that you can put your iron on a very low setting and put a towel between the iron and the curtain and make the wax nice and soft and then it's supposed to peel right off. Ugh!!

Poor frosty, he is looking pretty getto right now! I laughed pretty hard about that one because my hubby thinks it's really funny to put my Xmas decorations in compromising positions or he causes death to them somehow! He's a dandy!!

Thanks for dropping by my sad attempt of a blog. I say this to everyone b/c my blog is so stinking dull and I'm totally green with envy of all the cool looking ones.

Dawn was right about wax. Put it in a tub full of ice water and peel the wax away. Add a touch of detergent and you should have no problems. Can you tell that I've been in this prediciment a time or two!!

Keep stopping by my blog as I promise to stalk you too!!!

I wouldn't recommend ironing a velvety shower curtain, you might change the nap of the velvet-like fabric. Even with a low iron and a towel.
