How do you remove candle wax from carpet?
Put a big pan under the carpet and wax mess. Pour boiling water
from a teapot onto the wax. The wax will melt through the carpet
and land into the big pan. Fast and easy. From Bonser.
I've heard that using a hair dryer on it while scraping it with a
razor blade will work, but in my own experience, it seems that
cutting it out is your best option. But try the hair dryer first.
This is a method my father used while he was custodian at a church
where candlelight services were common around Easter. Lay one or
two paper towels over the wax. Using an iron set on low heat
setting, no steam, gently iron the paper towels over the wax. If
you're careful, the wax will melt and be absorbed into the towels.
You can also use brown paper bags to absorb the wax. If you use
old towels or paper towels, make sure they are white or you risk
dye transfer onto your carpet. Depending on the size of the spill,
you may need to use several paper towels. I noticed that a thicker
more absorbent towel like Viva, works better. Once all or most of
the wax has been absorbed, use a cleaning brush to brush the carpet
