My dog chewed up a blue Biro and spread ink all over my brand new tan coloured carpet. Can anyone help with how I can remove it?

after readin all the ways folks remove ink from carpets I feel lucky to have had a friend help me. First ball point pens aren't usually permanent ink and by itself use hairspray. You spray let dry a minute or so and with a paper towel or clean soft absorbent cloth lightly scrub then respray till all gone.
This works. I carried an old printer home on my car carpet and it leaked a lot of in on it. Did this and you couldn't even see a mark of it left. If you have permanent ink and do it right away it will work too.
How do you get blue ink out of light color carpet?
Saturate the ink stain with hair spray. Then allow the stain to fully dry. Mix a solution of one part water to one part white vinegar and pour the solution on the stain. Then brush the area lightly with a medium-bristle brush, preferably a toothbrush. Continue brushing until the stain is gone. Next, blot the area with a dry, white cloth. Flood the area with water. Blot again. Allow to dry.

I don't know if any of these ideas will work on carpet for any or all colors but they are worth a try. Be sure to do color fastness test for each idea in an inconspicuous place first:
And how in the world did you get tattoo ink on your carpet?
I have just found blue ink on my beige stair carpet. I am wondering what is the best way to remove the ink?
By Renee from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Try hairspray on the ink. I got red ink out of white carpet with it. Hairspray contains Acetone which will break down the ink so that you can blot it up with a rag. You have to work quick before the hairspray dries. I use Finalnet or something in a plastic spray bottle that you can remove the pump and pour it on. Once the ink is out, use some warm soapy water to pull the stickey stuff out. Good Luck!
If anyone has a suggestion for me to clean ink from my carpet, I tried but it has smeared into several spots. The carpet is peach colored with blue ink spots.

I then took Clorox "Ultimate Care" bleach and a toothbrush and carefully brushed the stain. It came up immediately and then I immediately soaked up all the bleach with cotton shop towels. So far it looks really good. It did break down a little bit of the actual twist in the fiber, but you have to get on your hands and knees to see it. Good Luck. (12/11/2007)

How do I get ink out of carpeting?
By Gloria from Milwaukee, WI
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)
Can someone help me? I left a color cartridge (printer) on the end table in my spare room and my grand daughter got it, she's 1. She dropped it on the floor. It was leaking blue ink and left this mess. What can I do to remove it? The carpet is linen in color, a real light tan, sort of.

I have an ink stain on my carpet. The carpet is tannish brownish.
I have a huge tattoo ink stain on my beige carpet. I tried Shout and alcohol but, they didn't work. The stain is all different colors. Any ideas?
Cartridge ink leaked onto nylon carpet. It was a small mark, but when I treated it with white vinegar it spread to a huge spot as big as a dinner plate.
