How to Get Foundation & Powder Makeup Out of Carpet
Foundation is used for a few different purposes. No matter how you use your foundation the spill will result in the same mess though. If you have spilled some of your foundation you will want to start cleaning it up right away for best results. First use a butter knife or a spoon to get as much of the foundation out of the carpet as possible. The quicker that you do this the less staining occurs on your carpet. Next get some cold water and add a few drops of clear dishwashing soap to it. Get a clean white cloth and dampen the cloth in the soapy water. Then carefully dab at the stained area. Make sure that you do not rub the area. Rubbing the area will result in the stain going further into the carpet. Continue dabbing the area until the foundation has come out of the carpet. Then use another clean white cloth, wet it, and use it to remove any soap that may still be on the carpet. Once the area has dried you may see some staining still. Simply repeat the process. After the carpet has dried you will want to vacuum the carpet thoroughly.
How Do You Remove Mascara Stains from Carpet?
As you are applying your mascara you may accidentally drop your application wand onto your carpet. If this happens you will need to get eye makeup remover, cold water, and a clean white cloth. Put some of your eye makeup remover onto the clean white cloth. Just like you did with the foundation stain, dab the stained area with this cloth. Repeat is necessary. Once the mascara stain is all the way gone use an additional clean white cloth to remove any eye makeup remover that may be on your carpet still.
Cleaning Eyeshadow from Carpet
