hot wax on cloth couch

I spattered hot wax on to my cloth couch. Of course, it dried quickly. How do I get it off?

Scrape off excess wax with dull knife or spoon. Vacuum to remove wax particles. Test solvent cleaner (rubbing alcohol, denatured alcohol, or dry cleaning fluid) in conspicuous area for ill effects on fabric and dye. Always blot from outside stain toward middle to prevent spreading. Blot. Do not rub fibers. Continue to blot until wax is removed.

Although warm iron and old towel, paper towels, and brown bag method is frequently recommended, this method can drive wax deeper into fibers and set dyes in colored wax.
