    seriously the amount of candle wax I spilt on myself is a mess!
  6. Here are ways to safely remove the wax from different surfaces.
  7. On carpets – Cover the wax with brown paper and press a medium-hot iron repeatedly on top, until the wax has been absorbed. Take care not to scorch the carpet
