How to Remove Pen Ink Stains From Your Carpet

carpet 27 Mar 2013

It has long been said that the pen is mightier than the sword. Whether or not that’s true, the fact is that a pen is much more likely to mean trouble for your carpet these days. We all use pens in our day-to-day lives. In fact, for most of us it would be difficult to get through a day without using a pen at least once. Now, you may think that pens aren’t much of a threat to your carpet. After all, inkwells are a thing of the past, and even fountain pens, with their unpleasant propensity to leaks, are hardly used anymore either. The fact is, though, that you are not necessarily protected from ink stains in your carpet just because you use a ball point pen.

There are all sorts of ways that an ink pen can cause problems for your carpets. Whether it’s the pen that exploded in your luggage during your last flight and leaves a stain on your carpet when you’re unpacking or the pen that your new puppy found on a low table and chewed to bits in your floor, ink stains find a way of happening even when you’re very careful.

Whatever the exact cause of the stain, the fact is that ink stains are extremely persistent and tough to get clean. After all, the entire purpose of pen ink it to permanently change the color of something and be visible. In a perfect world, of course, that would only ever happen on paper. In real life, sometimes it happens to your flooring. When it does, it means a stain that is virtually impossible to clean yourself.
