What do I need to get candle wax out of a carpet?
To get the candle wax out of the carpet with no trace of a stain (ok i didnt try it on a pure white carpet with red wax but i think it still works ok) you will need:
- An Iron
- Brown paper or Kitchen roll
If you dont have an iron i am told that a glass bowl full of boiling water also works well! So now you have the tools to hand lets get that candle wax out of your carpet! Cant watch the video below then read on for instructions.

How To Get Candle Wax Out Of A Carpet (without watching the video)
Ok so you put the brown paper down on the floor, shiny side up and rub your iron over it. You will see the wax grease coming through on the paper. Keep doing this, changing the paper around, until no more wax grease comes through. The video below shows you how to remove the wax using the iron and paper method.
It will also remove wax from curtains and soft furnishings as well (and clothes) however be careful not to burn these items with the iron.
