Rubber Stains on Carpet

I have a 7 foot long pair of awful looking rubber streaks left on my carpet after having moved a piece of furniture that had rubber feet. The carpet is a tight, low pile loop of blended colors, basically blue and gray. I desperately need help in finding a way to remove this from my carpet. Thank You!

Rubber Stains on Carpet

I had rubber stains on a tablecloth from the rubber feet of a small appliance. I tried Stainstick, Shout, and laundry detergent to pre-treat it. Nothing worked. I read the advice to use rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball. I tried it and it immediately worked. I used about 3 cotton balls on each small stain, using a new one as the old one turned gray. Thanks to everyone for the much needed help. No elbow grease needed for this.

The WD40 method was excellent, worked like a charm. Try using on pen marks on wallpaper this also works (07/29/2007)

WD 40 did the trick! I placed old electronic equipment on a white tabe. Took the black (little feet) marks right off! (10/21/2007)
