Wondering how to remove makeup stains from your clothing? You’re in the right place. Read on and find out ways to get foundation, lipstick, and mascara stains out your clothes. Those stains will be gone before you know it.
Liquid foundation stains
Liquid foundation splattering on a nice shirt? If you catch it right away, try using colour-free shaving cream. Apply any type of colourless shaving cream directly onto the stain, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. The cream will dissolve the stain. Then, use your fingers to rub the shaving cream onto the stain. Finally, simply rinse the area with cool water.
Powder makeup stains
Do not wipe it away as doing so will spread the spill over a bigger area. Instead, grab your hairdryer and direct the nozzle directly on the stain on a cool setting. If any trace amounts remain, use a mixture of white vinegar and water to blot away the stain. Try your best to resist the urge to rub the stain as the makeup will set into the fabric.
Lipstick is one of the trickiest types of makeup to get out of clothes. But rubbing alcohol is particularly effective at removing lipstick stains, because alcohol can break down oily and waxy stains. Simply saturate a cotton round or a clean washcloth with some rubbing alcohol. Then rub it over the lipstick stain. Finally, rinse and wash for best results.
Waterproof mascara stains
Waterproof mascara smears on your clothing? Do not panic. Just let it try and remove the dried, flaked mascara with a pair of tweezers. Or you may also use a makeup remover that claims to dissolve waterproof mascara. Then rub in some liquid laundry detergent before wash.
