Ugh. I hate those!

Here are some quick ideas to get rid of furniture indents in the carpet...

  • Shelterrific suggests melting an ice cube in the indent to restore the fibers.
  • Taking this one step further, The Frugal Life recommends vaccuuming the indent (after applying the ice cube) to life the rug's fibers back up. 
  • DIY Life offers two ideas to remove furniture indentations: 1) Wet a towel and use a steam iron to "iron" out the indents; or 2) Use a blow dryer and a comb or brush.
