Removing Ink Stains From Carpet

How do I get ink out of carpeting?

Removing Ink Stains From Carpet

I don't know exactly, but there is a product called Incredible and I buy it at my local Kroger grocery store in Houston, Texas USA. It got eyeliner pencil out of almost white carpeting in a condo I was renting. I sweated that one out, I can tell you.


The only other thing I can think of, and I'd try it in a tiny part of your carpet first, is aerosol hairspray. It gets out ink from clothing I know that. Maybe you have a leftover piece of your carpet from after it was installed and you can test the hairspray on that piece.

I have no more tricks up my sleeve, sorry, but good luck. (10/23/2009)

Hairspray! Works every time. Soak the stain with hair spray. Blot, but do not rub. This has worked hundreds of times with getting ink out of beige carpet to jeans. (10/24/2009)

Printer cartridge (cyan color) leaked two drops over the beige carpet. Out of desperation I magnified 2 drops to 8x2 inches by rubbing with wet paper towel. Thanks for the tips here. I used Oxiclean, first dabbed the stained area with Oxiclean mixed with water (1 tea spoon of Oxiclean with 6 or 8 oz of water). With just 4 swipes my carpet is spotless (don't reuse wiped off paper towel). (11/03/2009)
