    sticky situation

    I left wax in my favorite board short pocket, after pulling it out of the dryer it was all melted and crusty, any good ideas for getting that crap out of the fabric?

    turn the board shorts and pocket inside out and then start pulling it out

    bummer.. at least its only your board shorts. The worst is getting wax demolishing the interior of your car.

    haha cut your losses, and consider yourself lucky the interior of the dryer wasn't demolished!

    try turning the pocket inside out, laying a paper bag over the wax (to absorb it) and iron it with low heat to remelt the wax.

    This works great as well. I used this trick on carpet.
