Ink leaves clear stains, particularly on light-colored carpets. Many carpets are made of synthetic fibers which, though durable, can keep the stain more stubbornly than natural fibers. It’s important to clean ink promptly from synthetic carpets so that it does not have a chance to dry and place permanently into the fibers. The longer you wait to clean an ink spill, the more difficult it becomes to remove the stain completely. Fast addressing the ink may prevent it from turning to a permanent stain.
Moisten a sponge with rubbing alcohol. Blot the ink firmly with the alcohol, working it into the carpet fibers until the stain is removed.
Spray any leftover ink stain with a laundry place remover featuring a grease solvent. Blot the rubbed and also the stain, using a sponge moistened with lukewarm water.
Dampen a clean cloth with glycerin when the stain still persists. Blot the ink with the glycerin, reapplying it as needed so the stained region does not dry. Repeat until the stain is completely gone.
Combine equal parts glycerin, water and liquid dishwashing soap. Wet the stained area with the solution and then blot it in the carpet fibers so that any remaining ink is removed.
Wet a cloth with warm water. Rub the carpet with the water till all the cleaning solutions are taken out of the carpet. Blot the area dry, using a clean towel.
