Immediately after you stain your carpet with lipstick the first thing is to remove large pieces of the stain. Look for a spoon or a dull knife and carefully take out the large pieces leaving small amounts of stain on the carpet. Ensure that you do not damage your carpet while doing this.

What follows is getting rid of any loose lipstick on the carpet surface. Here you look for a clean damp cloth and blot the stained area removing all the loose particles.

When that is done, get a white clean cloth and some dish detergent mixed with warm water and hand wash the area until the spot is clear. For a cleaner surface, consider rubbing the carpet fibers in a circular motion moving from outside to the center of the lipstick stain. Also remember to keep on blotting the wet carpet using a clean dry cloth to ensure all the stain is removed.

In some instances you may find that the lipstick stain is still visible even after hand washing with the detergent. Now in such a case you need to apply an all-purpose stain remover. You can also try rubbing the remaining stubborn stain with a cloth saturated with nail polish remover. Other helpful products that you can use in this step are vinegar, ammonia or hairspray.

That’s it! With these simple steps of how to remove lipstick from a carpet, you now need not to worry about your kids playing around your house. After all you have the skills to get rid of any lipstick stain that would be spilled on your carpet.
