Step 1: Remove foundation and/or make-up leftovers
If the foundation stain is new, first wipe up the make-up with a cloth or absorbent paper. Avoid rubbing as this might increase the foundation stain on the carpet. Instead, it should be blotted off.
Step 2: Dissolve the stain in lukewarm water
Now apply lukewarm water to the make-up or foundation stain on the carpet (without agents such as soap, washing powder or liquid detergent). Dab the area gently with a damp cloth to absorb the liquid by blotting with a cloth. After that, drizzle potato starch on the make-up stain and leave to dry for 24 hours. Now vacuum. This should work wonders in removing the foundation or make-up stains on the carpet.
Step 3: Use a carpet stain remover
If the foundation stain on the carpet cannot be dissolved in water using the method described above, try to use a universal stain-removing agent to remove the make-up from the carpet. Carefully follow the instructions for use on the product's packaging.
Always test a new cleaning agent or stain remover on a small area in a corner, under a radiator etc. This to avoid any damage from colour bleed, discolouration, bleaching or dissolution.
