Remove GiGi wax from your carpet by using heat to draw out the wax.

GiGi wax is a hair removal product that allows you to get rid of hair right at home. The wax can be messy, though, and it can sometimes end up where you don't want it, like on your carpet. The sticky nature of GiGi wax makes it look impossible to remove. However, with the right technique, you can get it off your carpet without spreading it any further.

Step 1

Scoop up as much of the wax as possible with a spoon; it will harden quickly. After it has hardened, chip away as much as you can with a butter knife.

Step 2

Run a vacuum cleaner over the area to pick up the loose wax.

Step 3

Dampen a white cotton towel with water. Fold it in half, and put it over the remaining wax.

Step 4

Turn your iron onto a high setting. Hold the iron on the towel for about 10 seconds. The heat will help to draw the wax from the carpet and onto the towel.

Step 5

Switch to a clean part of the rag, and repeat the ironing process until all the wax is gone. Hold the iron over the spot for at least 10 seconds each time, but no longer than 30 seconds. Re-wet the towel if it dries.
