If you have ever had a candle spill on your carpet, you know how frustrating it can be to try and remove the wax. It seems to get everywhere and is nearly impossible to clean up completely. In this blog post, we will teach you the easiest way to remove wax from your carpet. Follow these simple steps and your carpets will be looking good as new in no time!
Material and tools you will need:
– A clean, dry cloth
– A hairdryer
– White vinegar
– Baking soda
Step 1: Freeze the wax
The first step is to freeze the wax with a clean, dry cloth. Simply place the cloth over the wax and wait a few minutes for it to harden.
Step two: Scrape off the wax
Once the wax has hardened, use a blunt object like a butter knife or spatula to scrape off as much of the wax as possible.
Step three: Apply heat
Turn your hairdryer onto the highest setting and hold it about six inches away from the wax stain. The heat will cause the remaining wax to melt and you can then blot it up with a clean cloth.
Step four: Tackle the residue
If there is any wax residue remaining, mix equal parts white vinegar and baking soda to create a paste. Rub the paste into the stain and then blot it dry.
And that’s it! You’ve now learned how to remove wax from your carpet like a pro. Be sure to follow these steps next time you have a candle mishap. Your carpets will thank you!
How often you should clean your carpet?
If you have a light-colored carpet, you should aim to clean it every six to twelve months. For dark-colored carpet, every eight to eighteen months should suffice. Of course, this all depends on how often the carpet is used. If you have a busy household with pets and children, you will likely need to clean your carpets more frequently. Spot cleaning in between professional rug cleanings is always a good idea as well!
