A mother has discovered a simple way to remove dents left by heavy furniture from her carpet, using nothing but a towel and an iron.
Tired of unsightly marks on her living room floor, Brisbane mum Tricia Ulivieri laid a clean towel over each dent and gently ironed it on a medium heat to steam out marks.
After ironing the towel for roughly 10 seconds, she removed it and patted the carpet with her hands which left it ‘as good as new’.
Australians have been raving about the trick ever since Ms Ulivieri posted a video of her handiwork along with before and after photos of the carpet in a household group on Facebook on Saturday.

‘I did this before moving out of our rental. Worked perfect,’ one woman said.
‘This is amazing!’ said another.
Others suggested placing an ice cube in each dent until it melts.
Once melted, dab the area with a sponge to absorb excess water and gently tease carpet fibres upwards with a spoon or coin.
Another woman said running a steam mop over a dent works just as well.
Other recommendations included spritzing a dent with water and running a hairdryer over the affected area.
It’s best to spot test your floor before trying these methods, because applying heat can melt carpets which are made from synthetic fabrics.
