How to Remove Lipstick Marks From Clothes

Lipstick comes in all shades and qualities and is a necessary makeup product for women all across the globe. Wax, oils, antioxidants and emollients are the basic ingredients in a typical lipstick.

If you accidently caught a lipstick mark on your clothes, you need to be very careful while trying to remove the lipstick mark. Remember that it will not go away easily because wax will make the lipstick mark stick to the piece of fabric.

Things Required:

– A piece of clean cloth
– Denatured alcohol
– Stain stick
– Liquid dishwashing detergent

    To prevent the lipstick marks from spreading, apply a small quantity of denatured alcohol on a clean piece of cloth and dab the lipstick stain with it. Remember not to scrub the lipstick stain because it will spread in that case.

    Dip your index finger in a liquid dishwashing detergent. Gently rub your index finger on the mark in order to transfer the liquid detergent onto the piece of cloth you are cleaning.

    The mark will still be remaining on the clothes. Use a stick stain on the lipstick mark and leave if on for about 10 minutes. Wash the fabric. Adhere to the washing instruction given by the manufacturer. If the mark still remains on the fabric, use the stick stain again, more liberally this time around. As before, leave it on for about ten minutes before washing the fabric.

    Wash the fabric in a mixture of household detergent and water. If the lipstick mark is too stubborn and does not go away, air dry the fabric to prevent the stain from setting in.

    When everything else fails, take the fabric to a dry cleaner as a last resort. The dry cleaner should be able to remove the lipstick mark using specialised cleaning methods.
