How to get Makeup out of Clothes
Its always devastating to see a makeup stain on your favorite T-shirt, especially when you are being careful while wearing or removing that piece of clothing . Its happened to me countless number of times. Also There is nothing worse than smearing makeup on your boyfriends T shirt when you lean to give them a hug ( In my case its my husband). But we’ve all been there. Its through trial and error that I’ve complied a few steps on how to get makeup out of clothes.
Lipstick and Foundation: Because lipstick is oil-based and so are certain foundations, using an oil based cleaner will help to remove the stain. I usually spot treat the stain with a dish washing liquid like the Fairy and olay dish washing liquid. Gently rub a drop of the soap onto the stain and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Then, use a clean cloth towel to rub the soap into the stain in a circular motion from the outer edges towards the middle. Finish by dabbing the section of fabric clean with a dry towel, and if the stain isn’t completely removed, repeat the process as necessary.
Powder Foundation/ Powder eyeshadows and Powder blush – For a powder stain, I usually mix a few drops of liquid detergent and water and I apply it to the stain . Gently rub it with your fingers in a clock and anti clockwise direction. It usually removes the stain without any hassle.
Mascara ( water proof and otherwise) – Apply vanish on the stain and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Then you can use the liquid detergent and water mix.
