Video: Don't cry over spilled candle wax. You can pull it out of your carpet quickly and easily with some paper towels and a hair dryer. In this video from the HouseholdHacker YouTube channel you'll learn how to pull candle wax from the fibres of your carpet using some items you probably have at home. Lay some paper towels over the wax, then blow air at the spot with your hair dryer on high heat. You'll see the wax start to bleed into the paper towel. Once one paper towel gets saturated with wax, swap it out for a fresh one. Eventually you won't have any more wax to absorb out of the carpet. You can also do a similar trick with a paper bag and an iron.
