Cleaning Makeup Stains out of Carpet

Cleaning makeup stains out of carpet – it can happen to the best of us! Whether we’re getting ready for a night on the town, or we have an artistic toddler who managed to get into mum’s cabinets, sometimes makeup just ends up anywhere but on your face. Are you worried about lipstick smeared into your great aunt’s embroidered area rug? Foundation spilled on the family room carpet? Whatever the problem is, Dazzle CC has the solution. Keep reading below to find more about cleaning makeup stains out of carpet!

Step #1: Identify the type of makeup before cleaning makeup stains out of carpet.

Different products require different cleaning methods! For instance, when it comes to foundation – a thick, gloopy substance with plenty of pigment – you’ll want to act especially fast. Immediately after a foundation spill, use a clean butter knife to scrape any excess from the carpet. Then, combine a few drops of dish soap with cold water. Lightly dampen a cloth or paper towel with the soap mixture and gently blot at the stain. Make sure you’re working from the outside in, and don’t rub the foundation further into the carpet. Continue to dab at the stain until no foundation remains. Then, blot the stain with a clean wet cloth, and then a clean DRY cloth to wring out any remaining traces of soap. After that, simply vacuum over the area and you should be good to go!

What about eyeliner?

Eyeliner can be tricky due to how dark and concentrated it is – especially the liquid variety. Again, it’s always best to act as quickly as possible to avoid long-term damage. You can always attempt to use the same process recommended for foundation above, but if that doesn’t work, here’s an even stronger solution.

Mix together 1/2 cup of warm water along with one teaspoon of white vinegar. Dab a cloth into the mixture. Again, blot at the stain from the outside in and make sure not to rub! Continue to blot until you can no longer see any traces of eyeliner. After that, use a clean wet cloth to absorb any of the vinegar solution from the carpet, and then blot dry with paper towel or a dry cloth. Simply vacuum the area, and you should be golden!

Other at-home products that can be used for cleaning makeup stains out of carpet:

Makeup remover can be used for more than just your face! It’s designed to remove even the stubbornness forms of makeup, so it’s worth giving it a try on your carpets as well. If you have lighter-colored carpets at home, you could also use a diluted mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide. We wouldn’t recommend this for darker carpets as hydrogen peroxide does have bleaching tendencies.

  • 5 star review  I used Dazzle Carpet Cleaning for the first time this week and am super impressed with the service and quality of work. After my previous carpet cleaner retired, I found Dazzle by searching carpet cleaners on the internet. I feel lucky to have found such a fantastic company first try. Kiera is very organized setting up the appointment and reminders and making sure I knew when the technician was arriving. Rob and his assistant cleaned the carpets. Rob is a very informed and talented professional. He ensured an excellent clean of my carpets and care of my walls and corners. I am very impressed and will call Dazzle in the future. I am also happy to support a small, local business.

  • 5 star review  Smokers these guys are busy! Called wanting to get my place cleaned this Saturday before my lease was up, the receptionist kindly explained that they were fully booked but took the time to tell me all about their services and prices even still. Great discounts for first time customers. Even though Dazzle could not book me in I'm still happy I called. Good customer service is hard to come by these days. I'm an old timer who believes that the person who answers the phone is the face of the business. I gave the receptionist my information and she will be calling me back to set up carpet cleaning for my new place when I'm moved out! Wow! Still giving me 20% off even though the discount ends this month. If this is just their reception, can't wait to see what kind of job cleaning they do. Will update after my appointment. Kiera (i before e, like you told me!) keep up the good work. You made an old man very happy by chatting with him on the phone today!

  • 5 star review  I’ve used this company 2 times now and am very impressed. The office staff made sure to confirm scheduled appointment time a day before visit, and also on the day to tell me that a service agent was on his way. When the Dazzle Carpet service agent arrived he was very professional, polite and got to work right away. I was very satisfied with the quality of work. I will always use this company going forward.

  • 5 star review  A friend of mine recommended I call Dazzle for my carpet cleaning, and I'm glad I did. They provided excellent services and were exceptionally friendly and professional. I would definitely give them a call again.

  • 5 star review  We had our carpet cleaned by them when my baby is three months old. They use plant based solution so it’s baby and pets friendly. Carpet got cleaned very well except one spot was stained with oil which came back to the surface after couple days which was exactly what they told us what might happen since it’s oil. Other than that, the carpet looks fresh and clean and they were able to remove couple of tough stains left by our dog. Will definitely use them again!

  • 5 star review  Dazzle Carpet Cleaning provided excellent service at very competitive prices. The technician they sent, Aidan, was punctual, professional and pleasant. He worked on stains until both he and I were satisfied they were removed. The products used were scent-free and dry within a couple of hours. I would definitely use Dazzle services again.
