I had a candle mishap a couple of days ago. I have a green candle in a tin that’s Christmas tree scented. I love to burn it this time of the year and had done just that. The smell was starting to get a little overwhelming though and it was time to blow it out.
Instead of getting up from the couch, I grabbed for it and somehow managed to pour a fair amount of the melted wax on the carpet
Let’s just say I wasn’t too happy. I did some googleing and some experimenting and learned something interesting.
The Best Way To Get Candle Wax Out of Carpet
Hands-down the best way to get candle wax out of carpet is with an iron and plain white cloth or paper towels.
Get out your iron and set it to a low setting. You don’t want to burn or melt your carpet and you can crank up the heat during the process as needed.
Grab some paper towels or a plain white cloth or towel. Put it over the spilled wax and start to iron it. Keep the iron moving.
The wax will start to melt and absorb into the paper towel. Move the towel around and get a fresh one as needed. Keep going until the wax is completely gone.
You can increase the temperature on your iron if needed. Just be careful not to make it so hot that the carpet starts to melt.
Vaccume over the area when you’re done. It will fluff the ironed carpet back up.
