How to Remove Mascara from Carpet

While that black mascara can really make your eyes look amazing, it can make your carpet look hideous. If you accidentally drop your mascara wand onto your beautiful carpet, have no fear! I browsed a number of sites on the Internet to find the best ways to remove mascara from carpet and have listed some of them below. Note that waterproof mascara probably won't be removed with just water. Don't forget to blot the stain rather than rub it and always test cleaning solutions on a small hidden section of your carpet to ensure it won't damage it.

Try one of these methods:

  1. Apply eye make-up remover onto a clean cloth or cotton ball and dab at the stain. Repeat as needed then rinse the area with water.
  2. Apply nail-polish remover onto the stain and blot with a clean cloth. Repeat until no visible mark remains and then rinse the area.
  3. Apply a dry-cleaning solution to the stain then blot with a clean cloth. Repeat as needed and rinse with water.

Mascara stains no longer need be an "eyesore" on your carpet. With these simple ideas you should be able to get them off your carpet and your mind. If you have your own method for removing mascara from carpet, post a comment at the end of this blog!

I dropped my mascara wand on my white carpet - it bounced when it hit and left two spots - I was sick and could only imagine the mess of cleaning would only smear it bigger and make it worse - BUT - reading these ideas gave me hope - I put oil free eye make up remover on a cotton pad and dabbed several times - it lightened - again on a fresh pad dabbing more - and bingo - gone - thank you - when you think about it - of course eye make up remover should work = duh ! hahaha !
