morin molly, afaird i can,t be much help to you on removing stains, however if you need help on putting stains into something then i would probaby be the guy to ask,however i guess if the stain is that bad on your friends carpet and all else fails to remove it, it could always be cut out and a replacement piece put in, but you best have a carpet installer do that for of luck.

I went to my first stop for cleaning advice.
I put the address below for you;
save it!
You will find it valueable.

Removing the wax, as you did, is the first step.
Then the advice below is the next step, removing dye stains. Even though it states "garment" all the prosesses can be done by hand on the carpet, too.

Dye Stains or dye transfer are the hardest to remove. Read the care instructions and any warnings on the garment label.

First soak up or blot any liquid and nueralize the stain by using a Ammonia solution of 1 teaspoon of Ammonia in 1 cup of water.

Next rinse and use a laundry pre-treat and let it soak for 30 minutes. Launder.

If the stain remains and the garment is colorfast, soak the entire garment in a dilute solution of liquid chlorine bleach (safe for the fabric) and water. (Test for colorfastness first.) Launder with a fabric safe bleach.

There are also a number of dye removers which are available in drug and grocery stores. However, color removers will also take out fabric colors as well as the stain.

Precaution: Chlorine bleach may change the color of the garment or cause irreversible damage. Therefore, it is important to check for color fastness before using. If the stain does not come out within 15 minutes of bleaching, it cannot be removed by bleaching.

Molly, watch out for Toolman's stain removel methods, they usually end up with a hole in the carpet and a few trees in the yard knocked down.
Later Bob
