If you're like me, you've had a candle drip onto a wool rug or carpet a time or two. Luckily, my mom told me about an easy way to get wax out of carpets. Just place a folded paper towel over the wax and then press down on it with a warm iron (no steam) for about 10 seconds. The wax should lift up onto the paper towel. Then, just flip the paper over to a non-waxed spot on the paper towel, until you've lifted all of the wax up.
