Ink Stain Removal Tips

We all know there have been countless occasions in which we have spilled something or tracked something through our home, all over our carpet and made a accidental mess. They can be frustrating, but hopefully some of the tips we provide you with will help out in between cleanings.  Today we will provide some tips on cleaning Ink Stains.

The first step is to dampen a clean white cloth with a high percentage isopropyl alcohol. Then proceed by dabbing the wet cloth on the ink stain. Make sure to only dab. Rubbing or scrubbing could cause the ink spot to spread. Let it stand for a few minutes and then use a shop vac to remove the excess fluid.

You may need to treat the ink stain with the alcohol again. Some other products could possibly replace the isopropyl, if you don’t have it on hand.  Hairspray, nail polish remover and other products that contain high contents of alcohols may be used.  When using any of these solutions, rinse with water then blot or vacuum dry until spot is dry.  Another tip is to try the solution on a hidden area of carpet to make sure it will not change the color of the carpet.

We hope this tip will help if the occasion arises.  If you cannot remove a stain or it’s time for your regular cleaning, our professional Local Carpet Cleaners would love to help solve the situation for you.  Thanks from Like New Cleaning and have a great day!
