How to Remove Wax From Carpets in 3 Simple Steps

Learning how to clean melted wax from carpeted surfaces is extremely easy. All you need is a clothing iron set on a very low temperature (with no steam) and some paper (packaging paper is perfect). If you don’t have any, you can also try a thin cloth or rag. The important thing is that you have an absorptive layer between the iron and the wax. Now for the fun part: how to remove spilled wax from carpets.

  1. With your iron warmed up and ready to go, apply the paper over the melted wax, and place the iron on top of the paper.
  2. Slowly pull the paper from underneath the iron. You will begin to notice the paper absorbing the wax.
  3. Continue with step #2 until the wax is completely removed from the carpet.

Yes, it’s that easy!
