How to Remove Mascara From Your Carpet (And Leave No Residue)

Have you accidentally spilled or stained mascara on your carpet after a good night’s out?

Worry not because our 1001 Shampoo has been designed to tackle the larger high traffic areas of your carpets and help you battle your make up stains, including mascara.

The formula works right down into the carpet fibres attacking ground-in dirt, the unique formula leaves a protective shield that will defend your carpet to keep it cleaner for longer.

Safe to use on most delicate carpets, including wool, 1001 Shampoo is your best friend when you want to get your carpet deep-down clean.

The whole process would take about 10 minutes in total and later we would show you how to leave your carpet feeling fresh and smelling.

Things you will need

  • 1001 Shampoo

  • Vacuum Cleaner

  • Clean Cloth

  • Bucket/Container

  • Warm Water

  1. Step 1: Vacuum The Carpet

    Vacuum your carpet before using the shampoo to lift any dirt on the carpet before you proceed to get the mascara liquids out.

    After that, as a bonus step, you can blot the mascara stain with kitchen towel to absorb any excess mascara.

  2. Step 2: Mix The 1001 Shampoo With Water In a Container or Bucket

    Make sure to mix 1 part shampoo with 6 parts of warm water in a bucket or container. The goal is to mix it up until you create enough foam.
