How To Remove Chalk From Carpet





To clean chalk from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1. Use a detergent solution by mixing one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of warm water. Make sure the water is not hot.


I've come home to find a chalk Picasso on my wall before, but thankfully never in the carpet. To clean chalk from carpet, first vacuum up as much as you can. Be sure to pick up any large pieces that have been pushed down in between the fibers before running the vacuum.

Now mix together the detergent solution in step one. Grab a clean sponge or cloth and apply the solution to the chalk stains. Blot the solution on gently and blot it off with a clean cloth or towel. Don't rub or grind at the stain as this can damage the carpet. Just pat it on gently with the sponge.

Apply the solution as necessary until you've removed the chalk stains. Rinse the area thoroughly with plain water and dry with paper towels.
