  1. 1

    Vacuum the stained carpet area one setting lower than the usual setting. Depending upon how much is stained, vacuuming may remove all of the chalk stain.

  2. 2

    Wipe the chalked area well with a moist baby wipe.

  3. 3

    Wipe the area again with a damp cotton rag.

  4. 4

    Repeat steps two and three until the stain is gone.

  5. 5

    Allow it to dry before stepping on that area of the carpet. When wet and walked upon, the dirt will rise to the carpet's surface.
