On Friday night my husband and I were in the kitchen getting ready for dinner - I didn't make anything special - because lets face it - on Friday night's I am just too tired lately. We were just going to eat at the bar top and spare us the whole set the table/clear the table thing when I moved a mug of water, not remembering that right behind it I had a yummy candle burning - It fell off the bar top onto the counter and splashed hot wax ALL over the kitchen! Including all over my husband - sorry sweetie!
As we were cleaning up wax from everywhere - even places you would never guess that wax could get - I remembered back to when I was younger and wax was somehow spilt on the carpet, my mom was so smart and taught me how to get it cleaned up so I thought I would share it with you.
How to get wax out of your carpet
Yes - I did spill a little bit of wax on the carpet for this post. Sacrifice Right?
I wanted to show that it really truly worked and I can't do it without a demo -
Shhhh... don't tell my husband!
Place a plain white piece of paper over the spot with wax.
Then warm up your iron on a medium setting...
... and iron over the top of the paper right where the wax is.
The wax will melt onto the paper.
I move the paper and refluff up the carpet where I ironed it down - if you don't have fluffy carpet you won't really need to do that.
Then I repeat and repeat until no more wax comes up.
be careful that you keep the iron on your paper so you don't melt the carpet -
And when you are no longer soaking up wax, take a warm damp rag and wipe the spot - and you will have no more wax!
This also works on your cloth couches as well!
