  • Using 3% hydrogen peroxide is extremely effective for cream/ white carpets. (Do not use this solution on dark or coloured carpets as it will bleach them. If your carpet is coloured you may need a specific stain removal product. Always follow the instructions on these carefully, so as not to cause damage to your carpet)
  • Add a small amount of the hydrogen peroxide solution to a clean white cloth.
    Firmly blot the stain to lift as much of the makeup as possible from the carpet. Do not rub the stain.Continue to dab the stain with more solution (moving on to a clean piece of cloth each time) until the stain is gone.
    After the stain has been removed, spray the affected area with water to rinse out any solution.
  • Use kitchen roll to dab any excess liquid and leave to dry.
