I knocked over a Yankee candle while it was burning.

Luckily no serious damage but candle wax all over the carpet hmm

Any way of getting it off?

Lowish temp iron and kitchen roll worked for me, might have to keep going patiently for a while but it all came out in the end

Or bag of ice cubes to freeze the wax hard then pick off. This is surprisingly rewarding!!

I'd try and pick most of it out first, once it is set and cold.

Iron and top quality kitchen paper. Or a tea towel under iron or any cotton bit of fabric.
