How do you get candle wax out of carpet and clothing?
Sheila from Flint, Michigan
Lay A piece of brown paper over the wax and then iron over it with A warm iron.This will melt the wax and the paper will absorb the wax.
Wow, it worked great with the paper bag and iron. Even after it looked like it was gone I went over the carpet a few more times and got more candle wax.
Wowzie-It really did work! Thank you everyone!
WOWZIE-The brown bag/iron really did work! Thank you everyone!
I split beige candle wax on a multi colored rug in a green & tan section . The paper bag & iron method worked amazingly well. Unfortunately, the black section of the rug without wax seems to have hardened or become crusty, as if damaged by the heat. I was unable to iron only the area with wax . Any tips on how to correct this new problem?
I was a skeptic. (I had like 10 tea lights dump onto the floor with a thick layer of wax.) I got a damp towel and used an iron (med/high to high) heat and used the steamer. Totally worked!
Damp cloth and warm iron works like a charm! Thanks!
Remedy somewhat worked but ruined my oriental carpet from the heat. =(
Forget the ice! I think this only works for when wax is on a hard surface. The video to watch on how to remove candle wax with the spoon, forget that too! Use the brown paper bag and an iron on med-high heat with no steam. I had a fuschia candle overflow in 2 different spots, one against the wall trim. What a nightmare! The iron and brown paper lunch bag worked fantastically! I was freaking b/c I thought I was going to lose my security deposit. Both spots are completely gone. Take my word for it, the iron is the way to go!:)
