Step 1: Blotting

Remove ink by blotting the stained area in order to soak up as much ink as possible. Use a white cloth so you can see when the transfer stops. You may need to use several rags, as you want to easily be able to determine if the loose ink is completely removed.

If you don’t have a white rug, you can use a paper towels to blot out your carpet’s ink.

Step 2: Soaking

You will now need rubbing alcohol to do some soaking. Pour a little bit of this alcohol over the permanent ink stains and let it sit for several minutes. In fact, letting it sit for 10+ minutes isn’t a bad idea. Be patient — this step is important.

Step 3: Agitate

Agitate the ink spot with a scrub brush or even a toothbrush to gently scrub the ink stain from your carpet’s loops and piles. The thicker your carpet is, the more you’ll probably need to agitate.

Separate your carpet’s piles by hand if you need to. The important thing is that your scrub brush is able to reach down to the carpet’s base. Ensure you get to the base of the fibers.

Step 4: More Blotting

For the next step you’ll need to once again blot with a clean hand towel. With the towel slightly wet with lukewarm water, proceed to rub the towel into the ink that remains and try to blot everything out. Repeat the process until you remove all the ink from the carpet.
