INK STAIN REMOVAL
Note: Using a wet/dry vac can be used for extraction instead of a towel.
1. How to Clean Ink Stain on Carpet Using Rubbing Alcohol
You can combine rubbing alcohol and a bowl of lukewarm water to remove permanent ink stain on the carpet. First thing first, dampen the ink stain with rubbing alcohol. Then, lightly blot the stain using a white cloth.
Repeat the process until the stain is transferred to the towel. For the final touch, dip the towel into lukewarm water and dab the carpet to clean any remaining alcohol or stain.
Note that in some cases, permanent ink on the carpet is extremely hard to remove, especially when the stain has been stuck on the carpet for a long period.
Some cleaning agents, including rubbing alcohol, can only reduce the amount of ink stain. When this happens, you can repeat the cleaning process or get rid of the stain using a different method.
2. How to Get Ink Out of Carpet Using Ammonia Solution
If permanent ink stain does not disappear after you clean the carpet with rubbing alcohol, try ammonia solution as an alternative method. You can combine it with detergent to get a better result. Here are the steps that you need to follow.
Create a detergent solution in a spray bottle by mixing a cup of water and a teaspoon of detergent.
Spray the solution onto the stain, and then blot it using a clean, white cloth. Remember: blot, don’t scrub! Scrubbing the stain on a wet carpet will only make it worse.
Let it still for a few minutes while you create another solution by dissolving a tablespoon of ammonia in a half cup of water.
Spray the second solution onto the stain. Blot it with a different clean cloth until the stain disappears entirely.
Once the stain is removed, dab the carpet using a detergent solution to wash away the chemical residue of ammonia.
Rinse the carpet with clean water and let it dry.
