Remove Carpet Stains Caused by Makeup

Part of the fun of fall season is all the chances you and your children get to dress up. Between helping your children with their Halloween costumes to getting ready for a nice Thanksgiving dinner, you're sure to use some makeup this season. If you accidentally drop some makeup on your carpet or if your child gets overexcited with their Halloween makeup, don't stress out. Lehigh Cleanpro has some tips to help you get rid of carpet stains.

Remove Mascara and Eyeliner from Your Carpet

The dark colors and texture of mascara and eyeliner stains can seems like the end of your clean carpets. That's definitely not the case. If you dropped your mascara wand on the carpet or smudged some eyeliner on it, prepare a cleaning solution using a quarter teaspoon of dish soap and a cup of warm water. Remove any excess makeup using a butter knife and a paper towel. Next dampen a clean washcloth with the solution and start cleaning using a lifting motion. Avoid scrubbing the stain as this will drive further into your carpet. Repeat this action until the stain is removed. Rinse the area with clean water and blot to remove excess moisture. Let the spot dry before allowing foot traffic to pass over it.

Get Rid of Powder Based Makeup in Your Carpet

If you drop powder based makeup onto your carpet, start by brushing excess powder onto a paper towel using a butter knife. Next, prepare a cleaning solution by combining a quarter teaspoon of detergent with a cup of warm water. Using a clean washcloth, blot the area with the solution. Work your way from the middle of the stain outwards. Let the solution sit for a few minutes before starting to blot again. Remember to use clean portions of the towel to blot in order to avoid transferring the stain. Rinse the area and let it air dry.
