Black Sharpie on my tan colored carpet

Does anyone have a sure fired way to get it out? I am ready to sit in the middle of the floor and CRY! I found a sure fired way to get it off of my wood table w/o removing the finish! Use Repel bug spray and it wipes off like it was never there!

  • I don't know how much will take it out, but my friend will use a damp wash cloth and place it over the stain and then use an iron and press the washcloth over teh stain. She managed to completely take out a fruit punch stain on tan carpet that was over 2 years old! At least if anything this might lighten the stains. I'm sorry, I'd be in tears too!

  • I really wish I knew. I have a stain from a green sharpie in my carpet also. If you figure it out let me know.
