My son decided to make a road for his matchbox cars on his carpet, with permanent marker! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
Does anyone know how I can get it off? We do have a steam cleaner, but I wasn't sure what solution to use.<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

There's not much you can do. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> My SIL has markers all over her living room. Professional cleaners couldn't take them out. The only suggestion they had was to trim the carpet with scissors.

i went to tipking.com and typed in permanent marker i found that one woman tried rubbing regular rubbing alcohol on the marker stains on her carpet and they came right out. its worth a try right i mean the carpet is ruined cant make it much worse- id try a small spot though before doing it all- let us know if you try this and if it works id like to know
