4 Ways To Remove Foundation Stains That Don't Involve A Washing Machine #SHEfindsSolutions

Ever do the perfect full face of makeup, only to slip on a blouse or dress and find you’ve transferred foundation onto your clothing? It’s the worst! Especially if you don’t want–or have time!–to change your entire outfit or sit around for an entire wash and dry cycle. Luckily, there are a few easy ways to remove foundation stains that don’t require a lot of time or energy. Try the tips and tricks below the next time you’re in a pinch.

Tip 1: Use extra hold hairspray. Simply spray some on the stain, let it sit for a couple minutes then wipe away with a damp towel.

Tip 2: If you catch the stain while it is fresh, try using a baby wipe or some makeup remover. If you use makeup remover, apply it to a cotton swab or towel first, then dab onto your clothing.

Tip 3: If the foundation is oil-based, try using a Tide To Go pen. It works like a charm.

Tip 4: Is the stain really stubborn? Try shaving cream. Apply to the stain, let it sit then rub the product into the stain and rinse with cold water. Repeat these steps, but rinse with warm water instead. You may have to let the water marks dry, but it’s definitely better than a brown stain on your favorite top.
