Here is a trick I learned a long time ago, I don’t recall where I originally heard of this trick, but I’ve used it for many years, and it works every time.
You know those depressions left behind in the rugs and carpets when you move a piece of furniture, screaming back at you that a piece of furniture used to sit there? Well no worries, just ice it!
Yes, for real, ice is the answer. Vacuum the area first, just to be sure all the dust and dirt is removed and to loosen it a little. Then put a couple of ice cubes on the depression. Let them sit all day, without disturbing. It’s amazing how long it take for them to melt.
The next day lightly fluff with your hand, if the depression is still there then repeat each day until it’s gone.
On my living room carpet which is a soft wool berber, and depresses flat as can be, it takes 2 or 3 days of treatments.
Just don’t vacuum or touch the carpet if it’s wet. Although I have never noticed any wet spots from the ice treatments, it must make it somewhat damp, and you shouldn’t touch it until it’s totally dry.
I don’t know why this works so well, but it does. So don’t let depression get the best of you, just ice it!
I appreciate you stopping by.
