Candle Wax In The Carpet

Q.    I have brand new wall to wall carpeting and a candle melted and put a large pool of wax into my carpeting could you please tell me what I can do to remove the wax from my carpeting without damaging my carpeting?

A.  For the candle wax on the carpet you need to put down paper towels over the wax, and run your iron over that. i.e., melt the wax and blot it up with paper towels.  Remember to  change the paper towels as the wax is absorbed.  This information came from a carpet cleaner.

A.  Try putting an ice pack on the spot and that should freeze it so you can pick it out of your carpet. 

A.  I had success in removing red wax from beige carpet by folding several white paper towels over the wax area and applying a warm iron to the paper towels.   As the wax melts the paper towel absorb the wax. You may need to change the paper towels several times to get up all the wax. My carpeting is beige again!!!


A.  According to a pamphlet I have left from our carpet cleaning business, scrape off excess wax with a dull knife. Lay a paper towel over the wax and with a blow dryer, blow hot air on the towel. The heat will melt the wax and the towel will absorb it. Clean with a solvent cleaner (like De-Solv-It) if a spot remains.

A.  This is for the person with a pool of WAX on the new wall to wall CARPET.  I found this in a book titled: Talking Dirty with the Queen of Clean by Linda Cobb.  Put ice in a plastic bag and lay it over the wax, allowing it to freeze.   Chip off all the wax that you can. Next, lay down brown paper over the wax (a grocery bag works great; use the area without the writing) and press with a medium / hot iron. Move the paper as it absorbs so that you don’t re-deposit the wax on the carpet. Have patience and continue as long as any wax shows up on the bag. Next, apply a good carpet stain remover.

  1. I recently had a home built and after we moved out of our other home, I had the ceprat completely replaced. I had to purchase approximately 2800 sq ft. of ceprating as most of this home was ceprated. Anyway, what I did was to call a place I found online that is located in Dalton, GA. Dalton is the ceprat capital of the world. Anyway, the name of the company is BECKLER’S. I dealt with a very nice as well as knowledgeable lady named Nikki. I told her what my budget was and she actually sent me several big boards of ceprating samples like you see in the ceprat stores. One side would have a big piece of the ceprat on it while the other side would have little 3 3 inch squares in all the available colors. She sent me several of these in different grades and prices and advised me on what to purchase as well. The pricing was absolutely the best I found anywhere, in town, OR online and the service, well ..I couldn’t have ASKED for better service. They delivered the ceprat to my other house and all we had to do was help unload it and my ceprat layer did that.A couple of things that are important that you need to remember: Don’t get polyester ceprating. Get nylon for wear and long life. The polyester ceprat might look great at first but it won’t hold up like nylon ceprat will Also, the padding makes a huge difference ..I would go with the heaviest padding I could afford. The price for 10# padding isn’t a whole lot more than the 6# but it sure will make your ceprat not only last longer but feel more luxurious to walk on.You can even call Beckler’s and ask them if you can go to some of the retail stores where you live and pick out ceprating that Beckler’s carries and this way you can shop while you wait on your samples. What you should look at is ceprating that Beckler’s can get for you and get the price from the store and then let Beckler’s quote your price. You will be amazed!!!GOOD LUCK, you will NOT regret using Beckler’s.
