The kids are back at school and ready to tackle a new year. The start of a new school year means that they are going to get in the swing of coming home with homework and other assignments. You can find kids on the floor in their bedroom studying and getting their homework done. The problem is that if they are working near the carpet you could end up with ink stains. The ink stains can be from leaving a pen on the ground that is leaking. It can also be a pen that has broken or the paper that has ink can leave a mark as well. You should be happy about them getting their assignments done but you have to be ready to clean the stain off. Cleaning an ink stain is something that takes a particular method to ensure that it is not spread out. Tough Carpet Cleaning outlines ways to clean the ink stains off the carpets.
Use Hair Spray to Remove Ink Stains from Carpet
This may seem like an odd way to clean a stain off your carpet but you can use hair spray to treat the ink. You want to have some hairspray on hand in your house for cleaning if necessary. You can use the hairspray that you want to spray over the stain and allow to sit for a minute. The hair spray will work to start to loosen up the ink and make it so that you can remove it from the carpet fibers. The hairspray will not allow the ink to spread out and should keep it in the area that it originally is.
Proper Carpet Cleaning Techniques
Now that you have the hair spray on the spot you need to have a clean cloth. Most people want to use a white cloth so you can see the progress as you go. The cloth should be used to place over the stain and pressed down to pull the ink from the carpet. You need to avoid rubbing or scrubbing the area so that the stain does not spread out making it larger. You can repeat the process again if needed.
Clean Ink Residues on Carpet
Once you are sure that the stain has been removed from the carpet you need to make sure that any residue is removed as well. The best way that you can do that is to use a mild dish soap and water to wash away the hair spray. This is a great way to ensure that the stain has been removed completely as well as sticky residue that might be left behind by the hair spray method.
