Removing Wax from Carpet

This is a trick to get candle wax out of Carpeting. Be very careful when doing this or you will scorch your carpet.

Place several absorbant and good quality paper towels over the wax spot.

Using an Iron with a steam feature, hold the iron about half an inch above the paper towels and heat the wax by blasting steam on it through the paper towels.

When the towels are hot, iron the paper towels over the spot.. Moving the iron constantly and lifting frequently to be sure there is no scorching.

Check the spot frequently as well.

Even remnant dyes should lift out with the wax. Be sure to clean your Iron surface before using it on clothes again.
