How to Remove Candle Wax from Carpet

If you need to know how to remove candle wax from carpet, look no further. It’s easier to spill candle wax than you might imagine and if you’ve found yourself in this situation, there are two ways to tackle the wax stain.

The Wet Method

Some methods suggest that it’s best to tackle the wax while it’s still wet. Use a cleaning cloth to quickly and gently remove the wax before it hardens. Keep the cloth moving over the stain and it will soak up most of the problem rather than the carpet.

The Dry Method

Once dry, use a metal utensil to scrape off as much of the candle wax as possible. For any residual wax, apply a chewing gum remover directly to the dried wax, then break up and remove pieces. For particularly tough pieces you can try using ice to freeze the wax and make it easier to scrape off.
So there you have it, two alternative methods on how to remove candle wax from carpet.
