If you have ever seen someone break a pen you know that the amount of ink that is in a pen can be quite a lot for such a small item. The ink not only will start to spill out but will also spread out and make a huge mess. It also seems that if you start to clean the ink up the more that it seems to spread and the bigger the mess is. Worse than getting ink on your hands or clothes is if the ink is spilled on your carpet or rugs. They cannot be removed and thrown through the wash to get them clean so you will need to have a method that can work for you. Just like any kind of stain you need to treat the stain as quickly as possible to ensure the best chance that it can be removed completely. Tough Carpet Cleaning lists methods you can try to remove ink stains that may be on your carpets and rugs.
Does WD-40 Remove Ink Stains from Carpets?
If you want to try this method it is best to test an area of carpet in a closet to ensure that no damage will happen. Take your WD-40 and spray it on the ink spot. You want to give the spray several minutes to work into the ink and loosen it from the carpet fibers. After it has had time to sit you can use a clean rag to dab away at the spot which will start to remove the ink. You can then follow up with a soapy water mixture to clean up the rest of the mess.
How to Get Old Ink Stains Out of Carpet with Salt
If you are lucky enough to catch the stain right away and it is still wet you can use salt to remove the ink spot. Use salt to cover the ink spot completely and allow it to sit on the spot overnight. The salt will pull the ink up from the carpet fibers and into the salt. You can then remove the salt with a vacuum cleaner and follow up with a standard carpet cleaning solution.
