    1. overinsolence

      use a carpet cleaner. in the future, put newspaper down first.

    2. You’ll want to get to the glue before it has dried, remove as much of the glue as you can with a paper towel, once you’ve done so using a spray bottle of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 warm water spray the spot and try to remove as much glue as you can from the fibers of the carpet. After you are done was the spot with some dish soap and hot water. If the Glue is dried: Once the glue has dried you’ll want to put an ice pack on it (you know those blue bags of slime that your put on knees when you fall) you want to make the glue as cold as possible with out making the spot moist. Try to remove as much glue as possible with a spoon (do not use a plastic spoon) Once you’ve done this spray the spot with some hair spray and use a tooth brush to get the rest of the glue out of the carpet. After the glue is lifted gently blot the spot with a warm wash cloth.

    3. you can try household cleaners and scrubbing ,or mineral spirits(thinner)

    4. “Goof Off” works great. Spot test in a corner first for color fastness. Can buy the stuff anywhere, Walmart, HomeDepot

    5. Use common carpet clearing products I guess. Go to a local store and ask for something like that I guess

    6. Wait a couple more days for it to be fully dried. Then put an ice cube on it to freeze it, after that just scratch at it until it breaks apart. It is a very slow process.
