For one to remove red lipstick out of carpet, he or she has to follow these steps which include: Squirt some Goo Gone onto the rag and start dabbing on the lipstick spot. Try dry cleaning fluid or lighter fluid if you don't have any Goo Gone. Start cleaning the spot as soon as you notice it. Mix ¼ cup dish soap with a few capfuls of Woolite and begin blotting with another clean rag. Blot out any residue with a clean wet cloth so that any remaining dye will not settle.
