    will it work for old ink stains?

  12. impleasen says:

    no dont ever do that the solvents in that shit will encourage delamanation to the secondary backing and your carpet will bubble right there, and also water will do the same thing because the backing is put on with latex and liquids and latex dont mix it will desolve the latex and ruin your carpet, the fluffing up the carpet just damages the face yarns by causing the twist's to come un twisted causing a fraying or feather out look

  13. impleasen says:

    just bad news all around get a sample carpet do this shit there showing and see if you cant peel that secondary backing right off the carpet, then youll see for yourself, edit shampooing your carpets is bad news it ruins it and cuts the life right out of it, water destroyes carpet, i know i instal carpet and i use to sprinkle the backing with warm water to soften it up in the winter time so it would stretch better and soon relized that water and solvent are carpets worst enemy

    My husband watched this garbage and tried it. Now it's going to be even more expensive to have it professionally cleaned. The WD40 just made it WAY worse!!

  20. indycarpetcleaning says:

    This is actually a good video… Im a professional carpet cleaner and this method will work. HOWEVER…. it must be rinsed out completely or it could cause problems. WD40 does work for a lot of things though!

  21. OGRUNERFUL says:

  28. isaac161000 says:

    You will need> Oxy Clean, water, and a shamwow
    step 1. apply oxy clean to the stain
    step 2. rinse with warm water
    step 3. dry with shamwow
    did you know that Billy Mays was known for advertiseing oxyclean

  29. Bob Loblaw says:

    Does this technique work with blood? I have a lot of blood all over the carpets of one of my rooms and the trunk of my car. Need to clean it urgently and it will not come out. Any tips would be much appreciated!

  30. DragonPunch2theFace says:

    this works !!!!

    but i used detergent not soapy water, the trick is to not be stingey on the detergent when applying to the stains as the soapy part cleans it

  31. Rubensteezy says:

    @ThePantyDroper OMG!

  32. freedomfromfiat says:

  36. Jamie Stephens says:

    Our dog chewed up a new pen, leaving ink literally in puddles on our steps. This worked perfectly! Notes: blot up what you can, let the wd40 sit on it for a bit (mine soaked for 30nin) Worked like a charm. Thanks!

  38. OEFVETERAN 2010 says:

  39. LisaTigressHardy says:

    OMG where the hell was this when I accidentally spilled ink on the carpet when i was younger, like 11-12 years old young. i got in so much trouble over an accident.

  40. Kristoffer Anderson says:

    thank you

  41. Charlotte Taylor says:

    This so did not work. The stain is huge now. Would have been better if I just left it alone. 

  42. HappyHooligan says:

    How about getting my dogs skidmarks outta the carpet?

  43. TheBuckshot49 says:

    Dropped a printer ink cartridge on the rug.  Tried this and it works like a charm!  Thank You!

  44. Jennifer Baulch says:

    yeah it does not work, it marks more on the carpet!

  45. wonders75 says:

    it made my carpet worser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! boo!

  46. Ilovewhitneyhouston 48 says:

    This doesn't work. It makes it worse. Best thing that worked for me was using rubbing alcohol and warn water. When using alcohol don't rub the stain just little dabs and I promise this works. The warm water gets what's left of the stain out if the carpet.

  47. Andy biersack says:

    NOOOO my carpet got a bigger stain what do I do?!?!?!!!!!?!

  48. freefalling093g says:

    am a kid and spelt this in my room am in soo much trouble!! am on my dads acc

  49. John The Verbose says:

    The crossfade jump cut at 0:38 took away any semblance of credibility. Can Howcast make a new video with less editing: no jump cuts, no transition effects (fades), nothing more than a one-shot time lapse? The process looks like it's worth trying, but the end result looked "too clean" to believe. And I do not volunteer the use of my carpet, lol

  51. TooManyHungryCats! says:

    i used acne pads(the ones with salicylic acid) and that worked too. i didnt have rubbing alcohol and i needed to get it out before my mom or dad saw it if mom saw it first she would tell dad and dad panics if the house gets damaged because of house value and so if he were to see the stain… well lets just say astronauts would probably hear him yell…

  52. Tim Pritchard says:

  53. gp 1000 says:

  55. Dustin Denney says:

    Don't use this it makes it worse

  56. Mahrinna says:


  57. Shara Watson says:

    I tried for literally hours to make this work but i think the sheer volume of ink might have been my issue. I can imagine that it would work for smaller stains.

  58. Mia Davila says:

    I used a paper towel and water then I used windex

  59. Lil Cheesed says:


  60. yulkwul says:
