We got candle pot for scent which was dropped by a guest and the hot candle separated into the carpet. How can I take it off? It is like the candle it isfrozen onto carpet .
My wife and daughter love those scented wax things, we have had several spills on carpet, I found making a dam around the area and filling with hot water the wax melted and floated to the surface a few seconds later the water was cool enough the wax became solid again then we used a dry towel to soak up the excess moisture. The water was not boiling hot just above the melting point of the wax. I figured out the temp needed by floating the plastic container that the cubes came in a pan of water on the stove once the wax melted I pulled the holder out let the water get a little warmer then filled my little dam (a hand towel) so the water was above the fibers. In 1 room the carpet backing is plastic and I was worried the hot water might damage the backing but it was fine, the second room this has happened in is wool carpet and it worked even better on that.
