This happened to me. Live and learn. I was terrified. If you are, it will be fine. I took paper towels (several at a time) an iron, heated on medium/high setting. I took several paper towels laid on top of wax and put iron on it. As soon as you see the melted wax come onto the paper towel you get new one (use 3-4 at a time). Mine luckily was white wax but if you just continue to do this it will come up; when you see what looks like a wet spot on paper towel use new ones. If after wax is all up (and it will be) if it was a colored candle you need to then use a carpet spot cleaner and it should remove color if left. I believe once wax is up there shouldn't be anything left.I have never had colors like red, so it may leave discoloration. Once wax is up carpet looks like before! Good luck. Let me know if you were as surprised as I was!
