If your couch or coffee table is leaving dents in the carpet, a quick and hassle-free way to fix the problem is with your everyday, standard ice cube.
It turns out that an ice cube, as author Chuck Palanhiuk suggests in his novel Survivor, is effective at removing a carpet divot/dent without much effort at all. It’s hard to see in the video above, but we tested it out and were able to remove a carpet divot made by a couch. All you really have to do is put an ice cube on the divot and wait. If you’re fixing a rug, consider placing a cloth below to absorb any extra moisture. If you’re getting mixed results, you can also try ironing the spot with just steam, which is another way to correct the problem.
It’s worth noting that removing a divot/dent in the carpet is really only helpful if you’re going to move the furniture. If you put the furniture back on the spot, it’s just going to make another divot.
