How to Remove Candle Wax from Carpet

How to remove candle wax from carpetWho doesn’t love a fab scented candle in their home? There’s the ‘good’ candles we don’t light, and of course the ones we use regularly to create a calming ambience and scent. Candles are a must in almost every home. Whether it’s a romantic dinner or a special occasion, it’s the memories we want afterwards and not a tricky wax stain to clean up. When candle wax spills, its a double whammy as it starts off as liquid and dries solid. When it spills on carpet it seeps down in to the carpet, before solidifying onto the fibres. Although candle wax stains are not ideal, they’re definitely not impossible to remove yourself.

How to remove candle wax from carpet

Method 1 –

  • Place a bag of ice over the wax to help harden it, making it easier to scrape off.
  • Use a dull knife to gently scrap off the wax from the carpet fibres.
  • Vacuum up the wax pieces.
  • If the wax is coloured and has left a stain on the carpet, then use a rubbing alcohol or a stain remover to clean it up.

Method 2 – Always try this out on an inconspicuous area of carpet first.

  • Place a paper bag over the wax. Carefully iron over the stain on a high heat, be sure not to use the steam setting and if an option, turn it off. (You can also use a paper towel and hair dryer on a high heat)
  • As you iron the wax will lift away onto the paper bag.
  • As the wax is absorbed onto the bag, swap for a clean piece.
  • Repeat the above steps, until the stain is completely gone.

    I ain’t suggesting your content is not good, however what if you added a title that makes
    people desire more? I mean How to remove candle wax from carpet.
    Renew Carpet Cleaning is kinda vanilla. You ought to glance
    at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write article headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion,
    it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility
    but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks

    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, wonderful site!

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well
    am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
