Lipstick and foundation creams can easily stain your clothes. Read on to find out a few simple and effective stain-removal tips.
Make-up stains on clothes is a common problem. It is best to give out your expensive designer wear for dry cleaning. However, if it is an everyday clothing item, you can try removing the stain yourself. Here are some simple and easy-to-do tips.
1) Use a Facial Wipe
Facial wipes work well on fresh spills. Gently blot or rub the stained area with a facial wipe until the stain lifts from the fabric.
2) Use Shaving Cream
This is a reliable way to remove make-up stains from your garments. Squeeze some shaving cream and apply it on the stained area. Let the cream rest on the stain for about 10 minutes. Then, wash it off with cold water.
3) Use a Blow Dryer
This is a common trick used by make-up artists. At fashion shows and shoots, when models use loose powder, some of it ends up on their clothes too. Any attempt to wipe off this powder makes it even messier. So, make-up artists use this handy trick. Simply remove the powder from your clothes using a blow dryer.
4) Apply Hairspray
This works best on stubborn lipstick stains. Pick any hairspray and apply it directly on the lipstick stain on the fabric. Now, let the hairspray sit on the stain for about 10 minutes. Finally, wash off the stain with cold water.
5) Use Ice
This is a great tip for spot treatment. As soon as you smudge make-up on your clothes, grab an ice cube and place it on the stained area for 10-15 min. The cold water will lift the stain in a few minutes and save you a lot of effort.
