When you accidentally spill wax on your carpet, it can be frustrating and difficult to clean up. Wax is designed to be heat-resistant, making it a tough substance to remove from surfaces. However, with the right tools, techniques, and Handee Ultra Paper Towel, you can successfully remove wax from your carpet!

Before you start the process, you'll need to gather a few supplies. You'll need a blunt object, such as a spoon or butter knife, several sheets of Handee Ultra paper towel, and a hot iron set to a low heat setting. Once you have everything you need, follow these steps to remove wax from your carpet:

  1. Allow the wax to cool and harden completely. This may take a few hours, but it's important to wait until the wax is completely hard before attempting to remove it. You can speed up the process by placing an ice pack or bag of frozen vegetables over the wax.
  2. Once the wax is hard, use a blunt object to gently scrape off as much wax as possible. Be careful not to damage the carpet fibres as you do this.
  3. Fold a few sheets of Handee Ultra paper towel into a thick pad and place it over the remaining wax. Press down firmly with a hot iron set to a low heat setting. The heat from the iron will melt the wax, and the paper towel will absorb it.
  4. Replace the paper towel sheets with a fresh one as soon as it becomes saturated with wax. Repeat this process until all the wax has been removed.
  5. If there is any residual wax or discolouration, you can try using a carpet cleaner or a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar to blot the area.

It's important to note that this method may not work for all types of wax or all types of carpets. If you are unsure, it's best to consult a professional carpet cleaner to avoid causing any damage to your carpet.
