    get some towels or rags, you don't care about. put one layer on the wax, get an iron and set it on high, place it over the towel, the heat will melt the wax and it will stick to the the towel. You may have to do this several times. Any wax that sticks to the iron plate will scrape off when it cools off

    You can also use paper towels they absorb well.

    Take your iron and heat it up. Get several newspapers and place the newspaper on top of the wax and iron that wax out. You will have to move the newspaper to put it over the wax until you get all of it out of the carpet. Good Luck

    Paper grocery bags have worked the best for me.:)

    Thanks to all. Will have to go to thrift store to buy old iron before I try your suggestions and will try to post results. Many Thanks

    paper grocery bags and an iron work great.

    Paper grocery bags work the best and you will not mess up your iron. You really let the hot iron hover over the wax and it is absorbed by the paper bag. If any was residue does get on your iron use a paper towel and wipe it off while it is still warm.

    Take a paper grocery bag and open it up. Lay it plain side down and use your iron on low to medium setting. Keep moving paper until it is all absorbed.

    The answers I received were good. unfortunately they did not remove all the stain. I found out that years ago when my son lived in the cottage his son spilled red candle wax on the carpet and its light blue, It may be impossible to get the stain out unless anyone else has ideas. Thank you to all that responded
