Therefore, keeping the paper towel in between the candle wax stain and iron would help to remove most of that objectionable wax. Care should be taken to ensure that the temperature does not harm the carpet or upholstery. It is also essential to use only white colored paper towels, as other colors may leave stains on the carpet.
The other and more frequently used method and guide cleaning wax off valuable carpet is to freeze the wax some more and scrape it as gently as possible. There are special fluids available in the market that can be used during such process. These include K2r Spot lifter, and Afta cleaning solution.
After removing most of the wax stain, take a little alcohol and dilute it. Dip a blotting paper and gently wipe the spot clean. This is to remove dye, if any. Do not use too much of alcohol, and solutions, as they may remove the dye of your carpet or upholstery along with candle wax.
Also check whether you can really use any water or solutions on the carpet’s dyes or upholstery’s dyes because some of these carpets have fibers that are non-washable.
Freezing and scraping method is also good for removing candle wax that has solidified on tiles. However, in such cases, after scraping, using water and detergent is ideal instead of using alcohol, or other solutions. Alternately, some washing soda solution may be used to remove wax stains from such surfaces.
