PLEASE help me remove these stains

My delightful DS has taken it upon himself tonight to deposit an entire bottle of foundation, along with other makeup products, on the majority of my upstairs carpets.

PLEASE, is there a way I can get them out? Money is so tight, I absolutely can't afford to replace the carpets.

I recently got foundation out (but not in such large quantities) with micellar water on a baby wipe?

Pay a professional to come in, it'll be £80 max for a floor

Make a claim on your insurance.

If you can’t get it out, your household insurance should cover it. I can remember my folks doing so years ago when I got candle wax on my carpet as a Goth teen.

Baby wipes are a good bet and then makeup remover. Then shampoo with carpet cleaning stuff - 1001 is good

Body shop camomile balm is meant to work as I imagine miccelair water will which is cheaper. Then I'd try shaving foam.

I'd pay someone to clean up that if I could afford it. And fit a lock to your bedroom door once you've cleaned up - just a simple hook and eye type fitted high up that he can't reach.

Elbow grease spray from B&M. I've not found a stain yet that it hasn't worked on.

Rent a carpet cleaner

Had a professional in last week. It cost £70 for hall and a teenage girl’s bedroom carpet clean. Took about an hour and dry in 3ish.

I had low expectations about make up stains and even nail polish being removed but the results are simply stunning.

The only thing they didn’t lift was a couple of glue drops. She is also an artist so hopefully you are getting a mental picture of the 8 years of wear on her carpet.

I don’t know if anything we can use domestically compares to the suction and chemicals etc of the industrial machines but if you can afford it get someone in.
