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  Aiden professionally cleaned a couple of our large area rugs and our sofa. He was very nice, very professional, and did a great job! The most important thing to me was to use a company that used cleaning products safe for my baby and my two dogs, and that’s what this company uses. Not only that, but they’re eco-friendly. I was thinking there would still be some lingering smell from the cleaning solution, but I didn’t smell anything at all which made me feel confident my baby and pets wouldn’t be breathing anything toxic as promised. We will definitely be using Dazzle again 🙂

  • 5 star review  From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.
