Below is a step by step process on how to remove wax from carpet. This process works most all the time if done correctly. Keep in mind! If the wax is colored, it is usually a 2 part stain. One being the wax that is in the carpet. Two the synthetic dye that remains after getting the wax out. If the color remains. You can try our magic spotter. More often than not.
