Removing Ink from Carpet (The Hard Way)

Liquid spot removers are readily available from any drug store, supermarket, or big box store. Many people prefer a simple blend of liquid dish soap and water. If you want to try one of these solutions, follow these steps:

  1. Use paper towels or an old rag to blot up as much ink as you can.
  2. Test your chosen cleaner in an inconspicuous spot on the carpet.
  3. Lightly soak a clean cloth with your chosen cleaner, making sure it is evenly damp but not dripping.
  4. Starting at the outside edge of the stain and working toward the center, gently rub the cleaning solution into the stain.
  5. Let it set for at least five minutes.
  6. Use a clean white cloth to blot away all liquid, taking care not to rub too hard.
  7. Rinse with cold water until all soap is gone.
  8. Repeat steps 3 through 7 until the stain is gone. If it persists, call a professional carpet cleaner.
  9. Lay white paper towels over the spot to soak up any remaining wetness. Weigh down the towels with a heavy non-staining object and leave overnight.
  10. The next morning, vacuum the carpet.
