Ink Stain On Carpet

Inks contain many different trace substances. Ink ingredients may include any number of resins, solvents and oils, so a cleaning tip that works for one type of ink may not be super effective on another type. It can be frustrating to find a solution that satisfies you, but if you love the garment a lot, the effort will be probably be worthwhile. Here are some of the recipes and techniques we've found that work to reduce or eliminate the stain entirely.

Soak an absorbent cloth with one of the following:


  •  Isopropyl rubbing alcohol
  •  Hair spray
  •  Turpentine
  •  Nail polish remover
  •  Tea tree oil


Dab the soaked cloth on the affected area, then blot with a clean dry cloth to absorb ink. Do not apply solvents directly onto the stained carpet. As with any cleaning method, always test this solution in an inconspicuous place before applying it to the whole carpet.

We hope this ink stain on carpet tip has been useful, please peruse the rest of the cleaning tips section.
