Sometimes, we have time to spend an hour or more applying makeup. But most of the time, we are rushing out of the door to work. And when you’re in a hurry, it’s very easy to spill some foundation, eye shadow, or powder on your carpet flooring.

Don’t panic, our trusted cleaning technicians know a few ways to make sure your makeup doesn’t stain.

How To Clean Foundation
What you will need:

  • A butter knife or spoon.
  • Clear dish washing liquid.
  • Cold water.
  • Microfiber cloths or paper towels.
  • A vacuum cleaner.
  1. Scrape any excess foundation from the carpet using the butter knife or spoon. You’ll want to do this IMMEDIATELY so the foundation doesn’t cause a deeper stain.
  2. Mix a few drops of dish soap and cold water. Lightly dampen your cloth or paper towel with the mixture and gently blot the stain (work from the outside in!).
  3. Keep dabbing the stain until there’s no more foundation in the carpet (no scrubbing or rubbing!).
  4. Dampen another cloth or paper towel in plain water. Use this to remove any soap still in the carpet.
  5. Blot the area until it’s dry and vacuum the spot.

How To Remove Eyeliner
What you will need:

  • ½ cup of warm water.
  • 1 tsp of vinegar.
  • Microfiber cloths.
  1. Mix the water and vinegar.
  2. Place your cloth into the solution and blot the stain (from the outside, in).
  3. Lightly dampen a cloth with plain water and remove any vinegar solution left on the stain.
  4. Pat dry.

TIP: Use the same steps for removing mascara and eye shadow, but instead of warm water, use cold water!


If you have lighter carpets, use hydrogen peroxide instead of a vinegar-based solution — it doesn’t have bleaching properties that will ruin your carpet.
