Step 1: Do not try to remove wax while it is still wet! I cannot emphasize this enough. When you try to remove wax that is not yet hardened you will more than likely push the wax further into the carpet fibers. Instead, grab a few ice cubes placed in a bag or a frozen bag of veggies and place on top of the spot of wax. Wait several minutes for the wax to completely cool. This will make it easier to lift the wax from the fibers.
Step 2: Separate the wax from the fibers using a butterknife or a similar item. You just need an item that can get between the carpet and the wax.
Step 3: After you have separated the wax, vacuum the area thoroughly. (Tip: Sprinkle the area of carpet with baking soda before you vacuum to soak up any moisture that still may be in the wax)
Step 4: If there is any left over remnants of the wax or a stain that was left behind, take a damp cloth with rubbing alcohol and blot the area until the area is spot free.
