In this blog post, we’ll show you how to get silly putty out of the carpet. Yes, there is actually a process involved in getting that putty out of the carpet. You see, putting is a substance found on wood and laminate floors. It is frequently used for a variety of purposes–e.g., padding, gliding, and gluing–but also comes in various colors and textures. When its content is changed from black to blue or green, the putty leaves carpeting behind it and simply moves on to other floors. There are various ways of getting that silly putty out of carpets–and we’ll explore them in more detail in the next part! Let’s get started.
How to Get Silly Putty Out of Carpet
1. Remove your old adhesive
This is a very important step. The adhesive level must be reduced to a minimum. In order to achieve this, you’ll need to remove the old adhesive first. This can be accomplished by using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment or by using an upholstery tool (also known as carpet cleaning equipment). If you’re going this route, make sure that the vacuum hose is positioned at least 4 inches away from the carpeting and that the soft brush attachment is lowered onto the carpeting in an even manner.
2. Trace and cut out the putty
Trace over your area where you want to remove putty with a marker pen, then carefully cut out your traced area with a razor blade or utility knife. Make sure that you don’t go too deep when cutting out this area so as not to damage your flooring material underneath.
3. Spray on solvent and wait for it to dry
After removing all of the old adhesives from your floor, now it’s time for putting on some new adhesive! Start off by applying some carpet glue around where you’ve traced out your putty removal zone in step 2 above–and make sure that it’s evenly spread around the room so that it will stick well once it dries! Once this has been done, spray some solvent (either mineral spirits or turpentine) over the entire surface of your room in which you’re working (but not on the carpeting) and allow it to dry.
4. Remove the putty with a stiff brush
Once your solvent has dried, remove the putty from your room by using an upholstery tool or a stiff brush. Use this method to gently remove the putty from your floor and make sure that you don’t use too much force in doing so because you might damage your flooring material underneath.
5. Apply some carpet glue around where you removed the putty
Once you’ve removed all of the old adhesives from your floor, apply some new adhesive over where you removed it and make sure that it’s evenly spread across the room so that it will stick well once it dries! Once this has been done, sprinkle some carpet glue over the entire surface of your room in which you’re working (but not on the carpeting) and allow it to dry.
6. Cover up any cracks or holes with carpet tape (optional)
If there are any small cracks or holes that have formed underneath where you’ve applied new glue, cover them up with some heavy-duty carpet tape before letting it dry completely as this will help prevent them from getting worse and possibly even causing damage to other parts of your floor if they get wet while they’re still wet! This step isn’t necessary but is just something that we do since putting y is known for causing small cracks when left alone for a long period of time–and we’ve found that it works well to avoid this!
7. Let it dry for a few hours or overnight
After applying the glue, let your room dry for about an hour or two before moving on to the next step.
8. Remove all of the excess carpet glue with carpet tape (optional)
This step is optional but we recommend doing this in order to make sure that the flooring material underneath is fully covered and protected from any unwanted damage caused by excess glue coming off of your floor over time! If you don’t do this, then you may find that your flooring material will start to lift up from underneath where you’ve applied new glue and could potentially cause damage to other parts of your floor if they come in contact with it while they’re still wet! Once all of the excess glue has been removed, cover up any exposed areas with some heavy-duty carpet tape and let it dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Where to get silly putty out of carpet
1. Find a store that sells carpet
Has your carpet cleaned professionally to remove any loose fibers and dirt from the surface of it before you go shopping for the silly putty
2. Dress up like a carpet cleaner and go to the store where you bought the silly putty
Don’t forget to buy some heavy-duty work gloves, safety glasses, and a full face mask! You’ll need these things anyway in case you get glue on your hands!
3. Pick out your favorite color of silly putty (optional)
In this step, we’re going to pick out our favorite color of silly putty for our project! We recommend doing this because it will help you find the exact amount of glue that you’ll need for your project since each type of silly putty has different amounts per container. If you don’t pick out your own color though, then we recommend using whatever’s in stock at the store since it’s usually pretty similar in color anyways! Once you’ve picked out which kind of silly putty you want to use for this project, then take it back home with you so that you can start working on it right away!

Q: What is the best way to remove silly putty from my carpet?
A: If you have a carpet cleaner that you can use, then you should probably try using that instead of just using your hands. It will ensure that your carpet stays clean and not damaged in any way. You can also try using a vacuum cleaner with a special attachment for removing the silly putty from your carpet, although it won’t be as effective as a good carpet cleaner would be.
Q: How much silly putty should I use to remove my silly putty?
A: If you want to remove all of the silly putties from your carpet, then you’ll want to use about 1/3 of the container (or about one quarter) of what’s recommended on the back of the container. You can also make it up into little balls and place them in holes and cracks so that they stick better. This is especially useful if you’ve got small holes or tears in your floor or carpets. If you don’t know how much silly putty is required for each hole or tear, then just read the labels on each container and look at online directions on how much silly putty is required for each hole or tear.
