I have an ink stain on my carpet. The carpet is tannish brownish.

I got on this site because of a pet/ink pen emergency on white carpet. I used Oxiclean powder with water and it is now spotless. About an hour and 7 white bath towels, now ruined, later. The key is to keep adding solution to the blotted spot like you are starting over each time, and blotting almost dry and then repeat. Near the end, the towels were barely picking up color so then I started to flush with plain water. Soak carpet with solution and blot, don't rub. You have to be patient, of course I was panicked for the first 15 minutes, but then I could see I was starting to win the game. The carpet is literally spotless. I started with two quarter sized spots of black ink from a Uniball pen. The process took me an hour and it is a good workout. Good luck! (06/23/2010)
