How to get candle wax out of carpet

If you're reading this, you've probably spilled wax on your carpet and want to remove it!

Fear not, I can show you how to do this in a few easy steps:

1) Let the wax cool and then scrape off any excess wax with the back of a blunt knife or scraper.  Scrape as much off as you can.

2) Plug in your iron close to the wax and put it on a low setting.

3) Put some greaseproof / baking paper on the wax (kitchen towel will work too!) and then iron on top of the paper.  Move your iron back and forth, just like you would when ironing your clothes.  Keep it moving so you don't burn anything.  The wax will absorb into the paper.  

4) Keep ironing over a clean piece of paper until all the wax has been absorbed!  

Job done!!
