How to get inkjet toner out of carpet?

Answered

I was changing the black toner cartridge on my inkjet printer and accidently got 4 or so small spots of black toner on my carpet. I'm a bit scared to try anything cuz I'm afraid the spots will spread or smear. Right now they are really small spots. Maybe I could just carefully cut out the carpet threads (whatever each little thing is called!) that have toner on them? Hopefully it didn't sink down to the base of the carpet and stained that too!

P.S. I have already tried VERY CAREFULLY to vacuum it out but no luck there.

P.S.S. I am a renter...aaaggghhh!

Thanks for any thoughts.
