    Either Stain Devil OR Vanish - works wonders, trust me!

    Put brown paper over the wax and iron on a low heat. Works like a dream.

    ooh, i heard that if you put the item in the freezer, then the wax will come out really easily. not quite sure how it works, but you could give it a go.

    That's usually for chewing gum.

    For wax either the brown paper thing mentioned further up or get a stain devil specifically for wax (i've never used one for wax but they usually work well)

    For nailvarnish DO NOT use nailvarnish remover it will dissolve the fabric leaving a hole or, at least, take the colour out of the fabric leaving a white spot. You get a stain devil for nail varnish and it works really well (have used it before)

    You can get a stain devil stainremover for nailvarnish that works really well generally, it's the green one for nail varnish.
