How to Remove Wax from a Carpet?

Candlelight provides a cozy and warm ambience, but the mood is ruined when the wax drips on your plush carpet. Hold on and don’t panic. Knowing what to do to remove wax from a carpet is the only savior. So here we go :

 

Melting it Out to Remove the Wax from a Carpet

  1. Take a butter knife and gently scrape off the wax chunks from the surface of the carpet. Vacuum up all the loose wax.
  2. Take a damp white towel, fold it in half and place it over the wax stained area. Put the iron on medium hot setting and place it on the damp towel for about 10 seconds. It will draw the wax out of the carpet and put it on the towel. You can repeat the process as per need. Make sure to use only wet towel.
  3. Use Carpet cleaner or carpet spray to get rid of stain. Blot the cleaner with tissue paper and spray some fresh water to remove any remaining pieces of wax. Blot away the excess of water.

Freezing it Out to remove the Wax from a carpet

  1. Take a bag of ice or put some ice cubes in a Ziplock and place it over the wax to hardened it. Let it set for few minutes.
  2. Take a butter knife and scrap off as much wax as you can with this. If you cannot take out the wax like this, use the iron method stated above.
  3. Use Carpet cleaner or carpet spray to get rid of stain. Blot the cleaner with tissue paper and spray some fresh water to remove any remaining pieces of wax. Blot away the excess of water.
  4. Vacuum the area to get back the original texture.

 

You can also remove the wax using hair dryer. First, heat the wax with hair dryer and then press down a brown paper on it. The brown paper will absorb the wax. Repeat the process until all the wax is absorbed.

If it is a colored wax, then it might discolor the carpet. In this case you need to work on stain as well.
