Of course, driving while putting on makeup isn’t the best idea, but when time is tight, it happens to the best of us! You should be able to remove the lipstick from the interior fabric of your Chrysler PT Cruiser with rubbing alcohol and a degreaser. Here is what you will need:
  • Metal straight edge: A butter knife or icing spatula will work
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Degreaser: Carpet cleaner will work best; if you don’t have any handy, use a laundry stain remover
  • White cloth
  • Toothbrush
Then follow these simple steps:
  • Carefully pick any chunks of lipstick off the upholstery
  • Scrape off any remaining lipstick with your straight edge. Work towards the stain so it doesn’t spread
  • Remove any excess lipstick by dabbing at the stain with a white piece of cloth
  • Once no more color transfers to your cloth, pour rubbing alcohol on a new clean cloth and keep dabbing! This should clear up the bulk of the stain
  • Lastly, spray on your decreaser and gently scrub the stain with the toothbrush. Keep reapplying the degreaser until the stain is gone
If your lipstick was a dark color, a rich red or purple, some trace color might remain no matter how hard you work at the stain.
