How can I get the marks where furniture has been out of my carpet?

I've moved my furniture round and the sofa etc have left ugly indentation marks in the carpet. Does anyone know any genius tricks for getting rid of them because I've done the ice cube thing that's often recommended and they're not shifting?

Use a fork to 'fluff' it up.

I think the marks will disappear over time. I'm forever re-arranging furniture and the marks always go.

Ice cube if it's wool.

I'm not sure if it's wool or not - I know it wasn't cheap but not dead expensive either so really not sure. The fact that the ice cube's not working suggests it isn't though. Fork is a good idea, has made a bit of a difference but it's still quite noticeable.

Would a vacuum cleaner do anything? Maybe the little tube, and push it over so it seals and sucks if you know what I mean. Might suck out the indent. Never tried it though! smile

Could be worth a try - thanks.

A steam cleaner should do the job or try the ice cube trick, I hadn't heard that it only works on wool.
