How do I get rid of an indentation in the carpet?

After moving the furniture around to accommodate the Christmas tree, I've been left with an indentation in teh carpet. I've vaccuumed it but it still looks the same.

Any tips?

Read somewhere that if you put an ice cube in the indendation, let it melt,brush up the carpet and then let it dry and vacuum it it gets rid of it. Haven't tried it myself, but can't see any harm...

I've read that one too - worth a try, I reckon.

Have tried it and it works brilliantly but you might need a few cubes.

ditto ice cubes

I've never had any luck with the ice cube trick but I have brought the napp back up by a brisk brushing with a nailbrush.

It will probably lift a bit of its own accord after a few days too.

Ice cubes then brush up the pile once melted.

and to prevent further indentation under the furniture, put down coffee pot lids (small ones) under the sofa wheels (forgotten the proper names!). leaves the carpet flat

ice cubes are brill... but try to move the fibres prior to putting the ice cube on.... scratch it with your hand then put them on.... it works really well..
