Lipstick Stains on Carpet

Lipstick stains on carpet are among the toughest to remove. Get these ingredients together before you start:

  •  Castile soap
  •  Ammonia
  •  White vinegar
  •  Paper towels
  •  Several clean dry cloths
  •  Cup of clean water

Lift out excess lipstick with a table knife or small screwdriver.

Apply castile soap to a damp clean cloth and blot, don't rub, the lipstick stain on carpet.

Next, apply ammonia to a damp clean towel or cloth, and again, blot, don't rub, the stain.

Then apply white vinegar to a damp cloth and blot (don't rub!) the stain. Finally, rinse with warm clear water, then place a paper towel over the spot with a weight on top of it to absorb any remaining lipstick stain.

Repeat the blotting (and not rubbing!) until the spot is clean and dry.
