If you are a newspaper reader then you may already have dark areas of newspaper ink on the arms of your sofa or on your light coloured carpet or rug.
You may not even notice the stains at first but if you read your newpaper in the same place the dark ink will build up on the arms of your sofa or on the carpet where you drop the pages. Suddenly you will wonder where those dark patches have come from!
Newspaper ink is based on soy pigments but often contains petroleum ingredients also — So a 2 step stain solver approach is needed. First a solvent to remove the the petroleum based components and then a second water based cleaner to remove the dark pigments.
With a little patience and some affordable cleaning agents you can remove newspaper ink from your carpet easily, if you have questions you can call Deluxe Dry Carpet Cleaning Cheadle & Stockport at 0161 768 0208

Desolv It stain remover spray or Hairspray
Several clean dry white cloths or Microfibre towels
2 small spray bottles
Bissell or Vax carpet cleaning solution
Hair spray or Desolv It spray will dissolve the oily part of newspaper ink stains.
Now add Vax or Bissell carpet cleaner to tepid water in one of your spray bottles according to the manufacturers instructions. Mix it up.
Vax and Bissell carpet cleaning solutions do not contain detergents, they will not leave sticky residue but I always like to give a final spray withthe clean tepid ( not hot) water in the second spray bottle and blot firmly with another clean dry cloth.
Its always better to avoid stains if you can … then you don’t have to clean them up.
Don’t read your newspaper or magazine on the sofa if it is a light colour.
