Keep Calm and Put on Your Lipstick

To remove a lipstick stain one has to remember- NEVER RUB. Trying to rub clean a lipstick stain makes it steep more into the cloth. Therefore, the best thing to do is to blot the stain with a little water. Then rinse the stained part under running water. Take your household detergent, spread it on the stained area and wash it clean with a brush. Simple!


Stubborn Lipstick Stain Removal Tips

  1. Use a drop of household ammonia on the lipstick stain. Spread it over the stain and let it stand for a while and then wash it off.
  2. Use your Hairspray. Spray the lipstick stain with your hair spray and then wash it off.
  3. Household alcohol is another tough lipstick cleaner. Soak a cotton ball or tissue in it and wipe the stain, rinse it off.
