Oh this solution is a doozie, one that I never thought I would come across. Not only does it work like magic, it has taught me a new term for an age old home furnishing issue that is adorable. The problem at hand is those deep marks left in rugs and carpets by furniture that has rested upon it for any length of time. Those indentations are eye sores, and can cause you to keep your layout in the same way longer than you care to in order to conceal them from view.
So, first off here is the most precious name for those fabric dings, carpet dings. Such a cute title for what used to be such an issue. But, now that I know how to fix, it, the big deal has evaporated. Funny how what was once such a thorn in one’s side can be banished by someone else’s crafty resolution. Definitely happy that the smarty who came up with this solution was willing to share, and as such see it as my civic duty to pass it on to you.
All it takes is placing an ice cube over the afflicted area on the carpet. As the carpet fibers absorb the water they plump back up to their original mass. Watch to see when the cubes have melted and then pick up the excess water with a towel. Follow this up with a vacuuming, and the difference will amaze you. Bye Bye carpet ghosts, we know how to fight you off now.
