How To Remove Wax From Carpet

I keep a wall plug wax warmer in my hallway as a night light so I can see when I check in on the baby. Someone (dog, husband…I don’t know) recently ran into the warmer spilling wax all over the carpet.


I did a little research and the most recommended way to remove wax from carpet was to use an iron and paper towel. Check below to see the steps I used and the end result.

How To Remove Wax From Carpet

What You Need:

  • Iron
  • Paper Towel



  1. Turn iron on low-medium setting
  2. Place one sheet of paper towel on top of the wax spill
  3. Put iron on top of paper towel for a few seconds
  4. Check the paper towel. After it has collected some of the wax, discard paper towel
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 until all wax has been removed from the carpet

For my wax spill I used 4 sheets of paper towel.


I probably worked on the wax spill for somewhere between 5-10 minutes and was able to get all of the wax off!


I hope you never has to deal with wax on your carpet but, if you do, definitely use this method to remove it quickly and easily.
