How do I get Flarp out of my new carpet?

The answer might be here.
Even though the title says "Flarp stains on clothing" some of the answers people came up with had to do with carpet. Looks like the answer is vinegar, maybe followed by alcohol.
Oh no, I'm sorry, this happened to us about a year ago & the blue flarp is still in the carpet, I tried everything including trying to heat it w/ a hairdryer to cut it out....Good luck with that. Hopefully you will get something that works & I can move the rug I conceal it with & give it a try :)
Another post and following string suggested white vinegar. It's working for us tonight after coming home from a hockey game to find that our dog got into my purse, our son's toys and blue Flarp. Vinegar works!
Love that I can go online and find a solution to anything! Just had green Flarp mashed into the carpet and found that the vinegar dissolved it and you can not even tell it had ever been there! It was a mashed spot about 4" wide and just covered in lime green Flarp. We picked off what we could and I just soaked it in vinegar for a minute or two then wiped up and kept wiping till paper towels are not green. So happy!
Vinegar is the answer. A few minutes of rubbing with paper towel and it was gone!
Thank you! Vinegar rescued several surfaces in my home. It combs fairly easily out of a full head of hair.
This is a miracle cure! I was freaking out at 6am when I saw the carpet in my daughter's room. I scraped as much as I could with a flat knife and then poured vinegar and voila! i use white and cider vinegar and both worked. Thanks everyone! I really thought that I would have to cut out that area of carpet.
Thank you! Used the vinegar advice below and it definitely worked. First I used a butter knife and, with it flat, I slid it under the putty to pull up as much as possible.Then, I used white vinegar and poured a good amount on the paper towel and started blotting over and over with wet and dry paper towels until no color from the noise putty showed up on the paper towels. Miracle. thanks so much. I love the internet!
The white vinegar & a butter knife did it..! Thank you for your post
Vinegar! I used apple cider because that's the only kind I had. I soaked a wash cloth with the ACV and scrubbed it right out! The "flarp" broke apart and the stain was removed completely within 5 minutes of scrubbing.
Vinegar works on the carpet. Thanks for the vinegar advice!
Vinegar worked perfect. I used apple cider vinegar but I'm sure clear vinegar will also work.

My daughter left the cover off her newly acquired Flarp noise putty. It ran into the carpet and is caked in really badly. I need ideas for getting it out of the carpet. I called the company and they weren't helpful.

I have had to do the following for things like this: Harden it with ice, scrape, and vacuum. Hope this works. Robyn (04/15/2009)

If the ice cube method does not work, I would suggest the following:
