Whether its marks from a bed, baby gate or other piece of furniture, finding dents in your carpet can be so annoying - especially if you want to have a reshuffle of your living space.
But one woman has come up with a brilliant trick to remove the dents - and we're blown away by how simple it is.
You can watch the video below:
"So I got rid of the baby gate today on the stairs which was a big achievement because it's been there for so, so many years," Laura explained.
She begins by taking her sponge and dragging it across the carpet to remove any fur and hair.
"That's where the dog lies so that's why [the hairs] are really gathered there," Laura said.
She then uses The Pink Stuff to scrub the area at the bottom of the stairs - where the wooden floor meets the carpet.
The TikToker then turns her attention to the dent, where the baby gate has rested.
"This is ice I'm putting on the dents. I heard it's a really good idea to get the dents out of the carpet," she continued.
Laura placed cylinder shaped ice cubes into the dent, and moments later it appears to have totally disappeared.
She then uses stain remover and carpet foam to spruce up the carpet even further - and once Laura is finished with it, it looks brand new.
And people have been blown away by the trick, with many not realising that ice could be used to remove carpet dents.
One person wrote: "The ice trick! Omg that makes sense!"
While another said: "BRB I’m just gonna put loads of ice on my carpet."
And a third commented: "THE ICE. I have little circle dents in my floor from my bed as I moved it around in my room and the dents have been there for almost 2 months now."
TikTok users took to the comment section of the video to offer different tips and tricks to remove the dents, with some suggesting 'fluffing up' the carpet with a fork, while others recommeded using a damp cloth.
One wrote: "A damp tea towel and an iron is a good way to get furniture dents out if carpets without leaving it wet."
While another said: "That ice method is cool! my grandma taught me to rub the prongs of a fork on the dent lol."
And a third added: "Apparently a damp towel on the area then press an iron over it brings the fibres back up worth a go if u think it needs another shot."
We're definitely trying this one ourselves.
