If your foundation spills on your rug or carpet, lift away as much as possible with a spoon or dull knife. Don’t wipe it up because that only pushes it deeper into the fibers of the carpet.
Most important! Try to attend to the stain as soon as possible! You’ll need to have a spoon or a butter knife with you along with simple washing up liquid. Cold water, a microfiber cloth and a hoover (vacuum cleaner) Next, you can use a shop bought carpet cleaning solution or mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid in two cups of cool water, stirring well to mix. Dip a clean white cloth or paper towel into the solution and wring lightly. Working from the outside edge of the stain toward the center (this helps prevent spreading the stain even larger), sponge the stain with the cleaning solution. Continue blotting until no more color is transferred from the carpet to the cleaning cloth.
Dip a second clean, white cloth in plain water and sponge the stain to remove any traces of the cleaning solution. If you don’t do this step, the detergent solution can actually attract more soil.
Finish by blotting with a clean, dry cloth and allow the carpet to air dry. When dry, hoover to lift carpet fibers.
The same steps can be used for all upholstery except silk or vintage fabrics. Always use the least amount of solution as possible to prevent over wetting the fabric. For silk and vintage fabrics, consult a professional cleaner especially if you need more stain removal tips.
