i just moved into a new apt, naturally i had to put a nice deposit down on the place. i was only here about two days when i accidently spilled candle wax on the carpet. my carpet is your average apt. carpetining. it is not a thick plush type. so i'm hoping there's still a chance to remove it or at least make it less noticableAnswer Question
Grab some paper towels.. and your iron. Set the iron on low (just hot enough to melt the wax, not burn the carpet) place a folded paper towel over the wax and place iron on top of it. the wax should melt and the towel absorb the melted wax, move the paper towel frequently so you can absorb the wax. continue to do this till most or all of the wax is gone.. then if there is color left (usually from dye in the inexpensive candles) treat the stain with carpet pretreat or a laundry pre treat (like shout) allow to sit for 30 mins or so and shampoo or scrub the spot.. This should get rid of it or at least make it WAY less noticable! Good luck!
