Removing candle wax from carpet

Removing candle wax from carpet

It can be extremely difficult to remove wax from carpet if you don’t know how to do it the right way. Use our tips to remove the wax quickly and easily.

For spilled wax on carpet, use a thick dry paper bag as a blotter and run a hot clothes iron over it. You can take the iron away and put it back on again to really heat the wax and soften it. It really works. In order not to damage your carpet, make sure you don’t touch iron to carpet without paper bag. The paper will absorb the candle wax. Be careful if your carpet is of synthetic fibers. The hot iron might melt the carpet. Keep moving the paper bag until all the wax is gone. The melted wax should have transferred from the carpet to the paper bag. So, after finishing the procedure just throw the bag away! Once wax is up your carpet looks like before! This procedure may take a long time but eventually it does work. You may have to repeat the procedure, but it is worth it!

Don’t spend your money on replacing the carpet. Just use our tried and tested ideas on how to remove the wax from your carpeting. Good luck!

Wax on the carpet can be an intimidating carpet cleaning challenge if you don’t know what it is, and how to remove it. But once you can identify it, and are aware of its properties, it is quite a simple job to get it out. I remember the first time I came face to face with this problem. I was overwhelmed, and after wasting a considerable amount of time, I had to abandon the attempt to clean it off the carpet. Then I did a little research, and my next wax cleaning job was so easy that I was as much amazed at the results, as my delighted carpet cleaning client.

Candles are usually made from paraffin, but beeswax, soy, tallow from animal fat and various kinds of gel are also used to make candles. A common characteristic though, is that the residue from burning candles harden rapidly and requires special effort to remove from the surfaces of materials like carpet fabric.
