    Get Wax Out of Carpet

    As an alternative--if you happen to have a heat gun in your toolbox/garage you can simply warm the wax and dab at it with paper towel/rags once it heats up a little. I would imagine a hair dryer on a high setting might work too, but maybe take a few extra minutes. I just cleaned a fairly large stain this way, took all of 10 minutes. I put the heat gun on a low-medium setting, somewhere in the 350-400' range, on regular household carpet. Big red wax stain on cream carpet--totally gone, and wax had hardened overnight.
