How to Get Ink Out of Carpet

A Rorschach test gone wrong. A bloodstain from your pen. Your quill’s fallen comrade. Whatever that ink stain on your carpet is, if you’ve come to us, I’m certain you don’t want it there. So stick around and we’ll teach you how to get ink out of carpet. The process itself is simple, but it’s essential that you act fast to prevent the stain from soaking into the carpet or setting. So don’t spend too much time deciding whether the ink blot below looks like a spider on a tree or a man holding up a shield during a messy fight (am I crazy?). Grab your supplies and let’s get to it! Let’s learn how to get ink out of carpet.

Because time is of the essence when you’re learning how to get ink out of carpet, we don’t want to recommend only one product for stain removal. Instead, we’re going to give you a variety of options, so that you can choose the product that you most prefer and (hopefully) already have on hand:

  • RUBBING ALCOHOL: Wet a clean cloth with rubbing alcohol and use it to blot the stain, starting at the edges and working your way inwards to prevent the stain from spreading. Continue re-wetting and blotting until the spot fades away. This will probably take 30 minutes or more.
  • WD-40 (or another spray lubricant): Spray the lubricant onto the stain and allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes. Then, blot the stain with a sponge and soapy water to remove both the ink and the lubricant.
  • DETERGENT: Mix about 1 cup of water with a teaspoon of dishwashing detergent, creating a soapy solution. Spray this solution onto the stain or dip a cloth into the solution and dab onto the stain. Continue blotting until the stain is removed. If the stain is small, this method should work well.
  • HAIRSPRAY: We can’t vouch for the success of this claim, but many people believe that hairspray can help remove ink stains. It works in a similar way to alcohol, which is why we simply recommend using rubbing alcohol. But if you want to try it, spray hairspray onto the stain and allow the hairspray to sink in for 3-5 minutes. Then, apply a soapy water solution and blot up.

With all of these products, we recommend that you do a test patch on an unimportant and unseen area of the carpet beforehand. Some products (especially spray lubricants) can permanently stain your carpet. Also, always remember to blot (not rub) and don’t pour a liquid product directly onto the stain (this could cause the stain to spread).

After you’ve removed the stain, rinse the area with warm water to remove any residue. Blot the area with a dry cloth to remove excess water and then leave the area alone, allowing the carpet to dry. After it dries, you may need to fluff the carpet fibers up with your fingers.
