How to Get Makeup Out of Carpet – Method # 1
Note: Using a wet/dry vac can be used for extraction instead of a towel.

1. Upon discovering the makeup stain, it’s best to act as soon as possible. If you see any excess makeup on the surface of the carpet,   carefully scoop it up with a cloth or plastic spoon.   2. For each specific makeup stain, there is a specific solution you can mix when tackling how to remove makeup stains:

  • Nail polish: no-color, no fragrance non-acetone nail polish remover
  • Foundation (liquid): 3% hydrogen peroxide solution
  • Eye-liner and mascara: 1 cup of warm water with ¼ teaspoon of dishwashing liquid
  • Lipstick: paint remover or rubbing alcohol

3. After you’ve mixed the appropriate solution based on the specific makeup type of stain you’re tackling, add a small amount of the solution to a clean white cloth. You’ll want to make sure the cloth is damp, but not completely soaked.   4. Blot the makeup stain (avoid rubbing) using the saturated cloth. It’s important to firmly blot to lift as much of the makeup residue out of the carpet as possible.   5. Repeat steps # 1-4 until the makeup stain is no longer visible.   6. After the stain has been removed, spray the affected area with water to rinse out any solution. Once the carpet is completely dry, vacuum the area.
