How To Remove Candle Wax From Your Carpet

How To Remove Candle Wax From Your Carpet

Had a romantic candlelight dinner, but the candles dripped everywhere? Learn how to get that wax stain out of your carpet!

Now, I'm going to show you how to remove candle wax from your carpet. Candles are very popular at the moment, but one thing they do is tend to drip on the carpet and it can be a real struggle to get that off, but there is a really simple way. What you need to do is to take a warm iron - bearing in mind that this will be on the floor, but for these demonstration purposes we're doing this on the table - so you need to make sure that your iron is safe, and place it on a tray, and not on the carpet next to it.

And what you need to do is take some kitchen towel or some white paper tissues and the waxy spot. And now, what we're going to do is use the heat from the iron to take the wax back into a liquid state and what it will then do is it will then be soaked up into the paper towel and that's how you will remove your wax. Now, let's just show you how that's done.

The iron's nice and hot. So I push the iron just gently, and as you can see, the wax is melting and it's being soaked up into the paper. Now, you just continue to do that until the paper is clear and there's no more wax left.

So we'll take another piece of paper here. You don't have to put any pressure on the iron, you just let the heat do the work, and now, we just keep repeating this procedure until all the candle wax is removed. Okay, that's soaking up nicely.

As you can see, the candlewax is lightly disappearing from the carpet. This will also work on things like tiles and fabrics as well as carpet. You just need to take it back to its liquid form and use the tissue to soak up the excess.

And I used a new piece of tissue here but as you can see, there's hardly any wax left in there now. And just a tiny little bit of wax coming off now. And there we go, how you remove wax from your carpet. .
