      I had this happen in college years ago.  My solution was to take a hot iron and run it over the spot covered with several paper towels layered together.  The wax melts (again) and soaks into the paper towel.  Once the paper towel was “full” started with a fresh stack of towels and kept at it. I was amazed at how “back to normal” that patch of carpet ended up being.  Hope that helps!

        Thanks so much for this help! I’m excited to try it. The candle spilled over during a dinner party onto my favorite rug, so excited at the prospect of “back to normal.” Thanks!
