Hello readers, we at FastKlean are experts when it comes to Carpet Cleaning London, and we would like to share with you a very simple trick for removing permanent marker from your carpet.  This helpful cleaning tip may come in handy if you have a young, aspiring artist in the house that has just revealed their latest colouring masterpiece involving multi-coloured scribbles on your light-coloured carpet.

You won’t need much for this easy task, just the following items and ingredients:

  • A non-oily hairspray
  • Rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl)
  • Clean white towels
  • A sponge
  • Water

It is very important that you use a clean, white towel as opposed to a colourful towel for Carpet Cleaning London as the dye may transfer onto the carpet, creating an even bigger problem.

Using Non-oily Hairspray

  • Simply spray the entire stained area with the hairspray.  It is important that you check that the hair product is not oil-based as this will leave a sticky residue.
  • Let the hairspray work against the permanent ink for half an hour.
  • Soak a sponge or towel in clean water, and blot the stain until it is completely lifted from your carpet.
  • Dry the carpet with a fresh towel.

Using Rubbing Alcohol

  • Apply the rubbing alcohol generously to a clean, white towel.
  • Dab the permanent ink stain.
  • Let the rubbing alcohol sit for half an hour.
  • Rinse with clean water and a sponge.
  • Dry the carpet with a fresh towel.

With a little help from Carpet Cleaning London permanent marker stains aren’t so permanent after all.  There really is no need to worry about leaving your little one to its own devices during colouring in time, knowing that there are specialist carpet cleaners available that can get any stains right out.
