Pens are one of the most handy tools to have around whenever you need to write an important note or reminder down. However, do you know when they’re not handy? When they’re spilling their ink all over your precious carpet

Ink is one of the toughest stains to clean, which is why we understand if you have a mini panic attack upon finding it on your flooring. Still, you shouldn’t fear! Denver Cleanpro will share a guide so you can remove ink from your carpeting.

How to Clean Ink Off Your Carpet

Get the Necessary Equipment


For this particular cleaning project you’ll need:
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Clean cloths
  • Warm water
  • Vinegar
  • Shaving cream

Act Fast!


You need to have an immediate response to the problem in order to reinstate your carpet and prevent the ink from really grabbing onto the fibers in your flooring, so don’t waste any time!


Blot It with Alcohol


Take a clean piece of cloth and pour some rubbing alcohol over it. Then, dab the affected area repeatedly to lift as much ink as possible. Careful not to scrub or spread the stain on your carpet.


Wash It Off


Once you’re done cleaning the ink off the carpet, use warm water and vinegar on a piece of clean cloth to dab and wash off the alcohol from your flooring, as it can leave its fibers feeling dry.


Use Shaving Cream


However, if after various attempts at cleaning your floor, you can still see the stain, spray a bit of shaving cream over it. Let it act for a few minutes and then blot the area again with the water and vinegar.


Allow It to Dry


After you’ve won the war against ink stains on your floor, all that’s left is letting the area dry. Again, grab a clean cloth and blot some of the moisture off. Then, allow air to flow through by opening windows and turning on fans.
