  • ice then scarape it off the carpet


  • Try icing it – if you can make it really cold it’s easy to pick out/off


  • these are good tips to know! i try to have good holders for the candles


  • Unfortunatly I have no help but that is really no good! Glad it didn’t cause any major damage


  • brown paper over the wax and iron on a low setting keep changing the paper until its all been melted and mopped up


  • Put an icebrick or similar in a plastic bag so the carpet doesn’t get wet, sit on wax to make it harden, then scrape off with a blunt knife


  • put a brown paper bag over the stain and then iron over it – the wax should soften and absorb into the bag


  • I will keep some of these in mind if I should ever spill candle wax!


  • I’ve never heard of some of these but I will keep it in mind if I ever get candle wax on my carpet.


  • A warm iron and brown paper does work in the carpet put not on the wall.


  • there are some good comments here


  • Boiling water, one melted pick up with cloth.


  • Have tried the iron and brown paper bag which woked in part but still left a mark/stain on the carpet.


  • a warm iron and brown paper


  • Sorry I never had that happen to me, I hope you found a solution by now!
