Heat wax

Burning candles in the house can result in wax dripping onto the carpet, where it quickly dries and gets embedded. Tarbox recommends heating it back up to remove it. Place a white cloth over your iron, then put the iron on top of the wax to warm it up. Finally, scrape off the wax with a butter knife.

“When you are done doing that, lay a paper towel over the surface area and iron on the paper,” Tarbox said. “The wax is melting and binds to the paper, and the wax will be gone after a few more applications.”

Important note: Don’t use the iron this way for more than 30 seconds or you risk burning the carpet. And be sure to use a white cloth and white towels since colored ones can transfer the color onto the carpet when heated up, especially if you have a light-colored carpet.
