How to get candle wax out of carpet?


Removing candle wax from carpet can be a bit tricky, but there are a few methods you can try:

  1. Use an ice cube: Place an ice cube on top of the wax and wait for it to harden. Once hardened, use a butter knife or a spatula to gently scrape the wax off the carpet.
  2. Use a hair dryer: Use a hairdryer on low heat to melt the wax. Once the wax is melted, use a butter knife or a spatula to gently scrape the wax off the carpet.
  3. Use a carpet cleaner: Apply a small amount of a carpet cleaner specifically designed for removing wax on the stain. Gently rub it in, working from the outside of the stain towards the center. Blot up the excess wax with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  4. Use a brown paper bag or a cloth: Put a brown paper bag or a cloth on top of the wax and use a warm iron on top of it. The wax will melt and stick to the paper or the cloth. Be sure to use a clean cloth or a bag and make sure you don’t burn the carpet.
  5. Use a mixture of baking soda and white vinegar: Mix together baking soda and white vinegar to create a paste. Apply the paste to the wax and let it sit for 30 minutes before cleaning.

It’s important to note that if the wax is old and has set in, it might be impossible to remove it completely. Additionally, if the carpet is delicate or a special fabric it’s better to take them to a professional carpet cleaner.
