Removing Makeup From Carpet





Author:Brent Cone

Removing Oil-based Makeup:

The household trick for removing oil-based make-up is to use a 'pre-wash stain remover' and spray it directly onto the stain. Do not rub the stain! Let the solution soak into the carpet, as most chemicals take some time (Lipstick and Mascara will need more time).  After the solution has had time to soak, rinse the stain with warm water and dab the stain (remember do not rub). The stain should be faded or completely gone.

If not, repeat the process. Another option is to use a stronger household detergent. Typically, the more expensive detergents will be best to use in this case. These detergents typically have more punch to remove those tougher stains.  If the detergent process does not remove the stain then you can try rubbing alcohol. Use the same process as above and remember not to rub the stain!  Let it soak and then rinse with warm water and dab. 
The longer you leave the stain untreated, the harder it will be to remove.

Removing Fingernail Polish

Fingernail polish stains are tough to remove and can only be removed with a chemical. Removing these stains takes some patience and skill.  The best product to use is an acetone based fingernail polish remover. You should test the acetone on your carpet before you try this process. Good test spots are in a closet or somewhere that is not noticeable.  When testing, place a small amount of acetone on your test area and let it sit for a few minutes.  Then remove the acetone by blotting it out with a white towel.  If there are no imperfections made from the acetone onto your test spot, you\'ll now want to treat the stain directly.

You should use a dropper to apply the polish remover to the stain.  Let the chemical soak, but not too long (most acetone based polish removers evaporate quickly). You should only let it sit long enough so that the polish starts to run. Then blot it with a white towel. The fingernail polish should lift off onto the towel and stain should be lightened. If the stain remains try the process again. Your last resort is to make a trip to your local store where they sell products that may work better.  Be sure to follow the instructions carefully.  With these types of stains I recommend contacting a professional carpet cleaning service.

Winn’s Pro- I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I manage 16 luxury homes in Aspen, Colorado and would not go anywhere else for my carpet cleaning needs. On top of requiring very discreet and trustworthy services, our homeowners have specialty rugs and carpets which require unique care. Over the long relationship Ute Place has shared with Marty, there is not a problem Winn’s pro has not been able to handle for us. When he says, “call me any time”, he means it! Marty is always willing to help in emergency situations late in the day or over weekends and holidays and arrives on your doorstep quickly and with a smile. My homeowners are continually impressed with the “magic” Marty works on their carpets and rugs, always leaving them looking like new. I would, without hesitation, recommend Marty’s professional services to any client looking for a superior, friendly and flawless cleaning service.

Thank you Winn’s Pro!

Testimonial from Mason Morse Real Estate:This is to let you know that Marty Winn did an excellent job of cleaning our carpets. His service is unbeatable and the quality of his work is definitely first class.We had stains on our carpet that no other carpet cleaner was able to get out. The stains were set in and had been there for quite some time. Marty came to our office and said he did not care if we gave him the job or not; but he wanted to try and get the stains out. He not only got them out, his prices were excellent also.Marty came and cleaned our carpets and has followed up to make sure the stains have not returned.I highly recommend and trust Marty and Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning. He definitely is a professional and takes pride in his work.Thank you for all that you have done!Sincerely,Karen Scarberry/Office ManagerMason Morse Real Estate0290 Hwy 133Carbondale, CO. 81623
