Candle Wax Removal from Carpet

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

What is the best method for removing candle wax from a rug? I've tried picking it off, but not all of it came off. Also, the candle wax is green and our carpet is beige, so it shows.



Dear Tired,

After you've picked off as much as you can, then heat your iron to the highest steam setting. Place a clean cloth over the candle wax and quickly steam iron over the cloth. Pick up the cloth, and put a clean area of the cloth over the wax, then quickly iron again. Keep repeating the ironing over clean areas of the cloth until all the wax has been absorbed. Do not keep the iron on the carpet too long so as not to "burn" the fibers.
