How To Remove Lipstick From Carpet


Lipstick On Carpet


To clean lipstick from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1.  Use a dry cleaning solvent such as Carbona or Energine. Dry cleaning solvent should never be used on polyester.

2.  Use a detergent solution by mixing one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid with one cup of warm water.  Make sure the water is not hot.


Oh the joys of being a parent.  It's Saturday morning. You've worked hard all week and you've earned your rest.  You sleep in until 9:30am and awake to the smell of brewing coffee.  You slide your feet into your slippers and head towards the kitchen, already savoring your morning coffee and muffin.

And on the way to the kitchen you spot this amateur Picasso on the floor.  Isn't being a parent fun?  We suggest locking your lipstick in a safe if you have young children as lipstick is not a fun carpet stain to remove.
