Most people know how to remove stubborn stains from their carpet – from juice and red wine to grease and ketchup stains, however, when it comes to candle wax dripping on your favourite carpet you probably have no idea how to treat the affected area. But don’t worry because I am an expert in removing candle wax at this point. Since I love candles, I have dealt with this issue many times – and today, I am going to share with you how to remove it!
How To Remove Candle Wax From Your Carpet?
– The First Method
Start off by filling a plastic bag with ice. Then place it on top of the candle wax and let it sit for a few minutes so the wax can harden.
Continue with grabbing a butter knife or a spoon and scrape off as much of the wax as possible.
Then it’s time to warm up the wax by placing a cloth over the area then placing your iron on top for a few minutes. The residue will transfer from the carpet to the cloth in no time.
– The Second Method
Again, start off by scraping as much as possible with a butter knife. Of course, you won’t be able to get rid of everything so don’t worry about it – just do as much as you can.
Then, just like I told you in the first method, harden the wax by filling a bag with ice and placing it on top for a few minutes.
Continue with scraping with the knife after the wax has hardened.
Next, it’s time to take out your vacuum cleaner and place the upholstery attachment on it. Vacuum the wax.
By this point, you might be left with a little stain if the wax was coloured. The wax will be removed but you have to treat this little coloured stain by pouring rubbing alcohol on a cloth then blotting the area.
And just like that, both the wax and the stain will be removed!
