How to Remove Makeup Stains from Carpet?

Having carpet will add color and embellishment to your home but it is also considered as a dilemma in maintenance because once something spills on it, you will have a hard time removing it. It is very hard to take off makeup and its residue from the carpet. There are solutions to this problem especially when you know the makeup that caused the stain on the carpet. It is important for you to know that both liquid and powder stuff can cause a stain if you let the product stay on the carpet for a long time. The oil content coming from the makeup will sit on the carpet and it will be harder to remove it over time.

Knowing the makeup brand will help you find the right type of product to remove the makeup stains from the carpet. There are makeup products that don’t contain oil such as eye shadow, foundation, and blush, but some liquid products such as lipstick, mascara, and foundation generally contain oil which will sit on the fiber of the carpet if not removed right away. Here are some helpful tips on how to remove makeup stains from your carpet.

When it is dry you can then brush away the residue.

Another thing that you can do to remove the makeup stain from the carpet is to put on some drops of hydrogen peroxide.
