How can I get lipstick out of my carpet? Can I get blood out of my carpet?

Answer: For your question regarding blood, I would suggest that you blot up excess liquid with a clean, absorbent cloth. Generously and evenly spray the area with a BISSELL enzyme action product like Pet Stain and Odor Pre-treat for Carpet and Upholstery. It has enzyme cleaning agents that go deep into the carpet and "eats" away the stain.  Per instructions, spray the stain, and then cover with a damp towel for up to 72 hours.  Then, use your BISSELL upright or portable deep cleaner over the affected area.

Regarding your question about lipstick, I recommend you using Tough Stain Pre-Treat for Carpet and Upholstery on heavily soiled areas before using your upright or portable deep cleaner.  Work the Tough Stain Pre-Treat into the area with a small brush, sponge, or cloth using light strokes from the edges of the stain to the center.  When you reach the center of the stain, lightly pinch in an upward motion. Do not rub the stain.  Wait 5 minutes.  Then, use your deep cleaning system over the affected area.

If there is any discoloration remaining, follow up with OxyPro® Stain Remover for Carpet .
