Tips: How to remove candle wax
Candle wax is a common problem, but no one really knows just how easy it is to solve.
Scrubbing, washing, scratching and scraping would not do it. Well, you will be happy to know that if you have got a candle wax stain on your carpet, all you need is an iron and a couple of paper towels. It may seem a little strange, but this actually does work. Just give it a try. You will be amazed by how fast and effective it is.
The best way to get rid of stains is not to get them in the first place, there are a few simple ways to avoid them:
1. Buy better candles, cheap candles have lots of additives in them that cause them to stain worse, try a candle that is nothing but paraffin wax, scent, color, and steric acid (the acid helps the candle wax burn away so there is little to no dripping.)
2. Even dripless candles drip if there is a draft near where they are burning, make sure they are not near any open windows, fans, or heater vents.
3. Make sure that the candle holder is big enough to hold any spillovers.
4. Never blow out your candles, use a snuffer, if you do not have one a shot glass or juice glass over the wick until the flame is out works great. and
5. if you have just put a candle out do not move it until the wax has solidified again. -- Hope this helps - BoBoTiger (niki nance)
