We are always being asked how to get wax out of a carpet so I thought it might help you all if we made a little video on how to get hardened wax out of carpets, just incase you happen to knock over your Yankee Candle, other branded candle or even your Scentsy Wax Melt Warmer. This method uses heat – to find out how to get wax out of a carpet with no iron – click here.
To get the 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!
How To Get Wax Out Of A Carpet
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. Please see the video below anyway and for more ‘How To’ vlogs please like this video and subscribe to our You Tube Channel.
