Getting The Wax Out!

                            ~ Here is our culprit!                                  

               ~ Actually it was my fault :)

       ~As if nothing had happened!

We had our friends over for dinner and I who love candles, lit all the candles up in our place. While we were enjoying our meal, I heard the dripping! Right onto the carpet. I know, I should have been more careful. So we had a big plot of wax on our new soft carpet!

I had been wondering how I was going to get that off. Benjamin had the best idea ever. He told me to put a cloth onto the dry wax and hook up the iron and go at it! I held the iron onto the cloth and the wax went right into the cloth! Make sure you don't use a cloth that has color in it, it will bleed onto the carpet! The carpet is soft and free of all wax! :) Thank you Benjamin!!!

I'm so glad you got the wax out! I would have been too freaked out to think about solutions — husbands are sooo needed.;-)
