is to pull as much of the putty up by hand. Then with a larger chunk,

the putty to bond to the putty in the carpet and will allow you to pull
up pieces of the stuck putty. Repeat until you can't get anymore putty
up and then use alcohol to remove the rest (only if it won't ruin your
This technique also works on clothes, but instead of the alcohol, just
wash the fabric in warm/hot water.
