Can you get marker out of a carpet?

My son used a green RoseArt marker to draw all over himself, the light carpet and his sister's bed. Any ideas on how to get that out of the carpet?

  • Yup, greased lighetning works wonders!! I use it all the time! It even gets up fingernail polish

  • GooGone works good to but keep your son out of the room when you spray it

  • Thanks ladies. I actually ended up using peroxide and it worked very well. In fact, TOO well. I now have clean in place of the marker. I suppose I have some shampooing to do this summer.
