How can I remove candle wax from my tablecloth?

Wax Removal from Tablecloth

To get candle wax off your tablecloth, put a plain paper bag over the spot, and press with a warm (not hot) iron. Continue this, using fresh pieces of paper until all the wax is absorbed. If some of the dye has seeped into the fabric of your tablecloth and remains after removing the wax, try laundering with a color-safe bleach.

I have used this method and it has worked , also using an ice cube , and then chip off . Yes some dye sometimes does remain and have used the suggested method and you have to keep working at it to have success .
