Q. When I bought a new bed set, the old set left imprints in the wall-to-wall carpet. How can I raise the crushed fibers and make them invisible?

The new set’s feet are different from the old.

A. Try this: Place a damp cloth over an imprint and run a hot iron over it. Or set the iron on steam and run it over the imprints. Then fluff up the fibers with a stiff comb or hair pick.

The new bed set may have round, smooth steel feet that will make less deep imprints. You could also put round or square rubber foot cups under the new set to keep imprints to a minimum.
