leave it to go cold, it might peel off

Kitchen towel - while it's still warm ...try not to scrape.

As a last resort oven cleaner (very last resort)

vinegar on kitchen towel onto hottish iron has worked for me.

newish but i can trim it off cos it had melted the carpet abit and the fluff is really long (i know thats strange) but not burnt it

That's good. I dropped an iron once and left an iron-shaped mark right in the bedroom doorway. Dh didn't notice it for almost 7 years!

My dh did this the other week- right inthe middle of the dining room. and it's a short pile so is really noticeable... contemplating the house insurance at the moment
