Candle wax and red wine are two common stains that seem impossible to get out. Here are a few suggestions on how to get out those two common stubborn stains.

When you spill candle wax on your carpet, the first thing you will want to do is to let the hot wax cool completely. After the wax cools, try to scrape off as much of the hardened wax as possible. The next step is to put paper towels over the wax and press the paper towels with a warm dry iron. After that area again cools completely, fluff the fibers with your fingers.

When you spill red wine, you will want to do the opposite of candle wax, and you will want to blot the area with an absorbent cloth as quickly as possible. Next, spritz or sponge the area with cold water. Then, sponge with a mixture of 1Tbsp white vinegar and 1Tbsp liquid dish soap to 2 cups of warm water, and then blot dry. Again, spritz or sponge with cold water, and blot dry.

There are carpet stain remover products out there, just make sure you follow their instructions closely. But if you are in a pinch and don’t have those products available, try these suggestions to help you get these stains out.
