Helpful Hint- Remove Candle Wax From Carpet

I came across this hint from HELOISE and thought I would pass it on since candles are burned often during Christmas. HELOISE shared that this is from the Carpet and Rug Institute and this is now a new and improved method for removing candle wax from carpets. This is what we need to do- Put ice in a metal pan, put the pan on the candle wax and leave it there until the wax is frozen. Remove the pan and hit the candle wax with a blunt object, and the surface wax will shatter. Then vacuum it up. To remove the wax that has gotten down into the fibers, put rubbing alcohol on a white cloth and blot and press until the remaining wax is gone.
