Make-up can make you look and feel sensational, but when you drop it on the carpet it can be a disaster and ruin the floor covering if left untouched. You need to act quickly, and ensure that you remove the oil based substance as fast as you can. There are several different techniques that you can apply which will ensure you have a clean carpet again.

You need to understand what make-up you have dropped, and decide whether it is oil based, or made from other substances. Oil based stains are far harder to remove, and why many people struggle to get them off the carpet. You will need some form of solvent to remove this style of makeup, and if unsure what to use, contact a carpet cleaning company in Cheltenham.

There is a process that you need to follow, which includes a treatment and rinse cycle that will help to lift the stain. Not only do you want to remove the stain, but also the odour before it becomes uncomfortable. Nail polish remover is excellent for this style of spill, but it can smell off putting, especially on your carpets.

You should always blot this style of stain, and never rub the make-up as this can make the problem far worse. Blotting with warm water is recommended, and you will notice an immediate difference in the colour of the stain. You should dilute the remover, and gently blot the area with a cloth soaked in the solution. This will help to lift the oil, and any make-up that is lingering.
