Moving into a new home or rearranging furniture in your existing one? How can you eliminate those pesky carpet dents from heavy items? You know those dips that show up under sofa or armchair feet, headboard pegs, or piano legs?
What if you move stuff around and don’t want to leave those craters in the carpets?
Here’s a simple way to fluff up rug fibers, making them smooth again.
Just grab a bunch of ice cubes. Toss one into each hollow spot. Leave them there overnight.
The next day, just spruce up the textile fibers in each former furniture dent. Pull out the vacuum, if you wish.
Whoosh! The dents are gone, and the carpet looks smooth again.
