How many times have you almost walked out the door and noticed a little lipstick stain or a smudge of foundation on your shirt collar? I’m guessing the answer is a bunch. But that doesn’t mean that you have to change your shirt. Here are a few simple ways to remove those annoying makeup stains that won’t take up too much time.
1.Invest in a portable stain remover. If you looking for a quick way to get rid of the most minimal stain, try pulling out a stain removing pen. These handy little tools are lifesavers! Though, make sure you test out a small area to make sure that it will work for the stain and the fabric that you’re wearing.
2.Use your everyday makeup pads. If you’ve dealing with a power foundation spill on your collar, a makeup pad may do the trick. Try to remove as much makeup as you can by dabbing a paper towel over the area or brushing away power with a clean makeup brush. (Make sure you don’t smear.) Then gently pat the stained area, and repeat to remove as you would your daily makeup.
3.Pull out grease-fighting household items. Dish washing liquid such as Dawn is a great tool to fight oily makeup stains like lipstick. Start by trying to remove any excess makeup with a paper towel. Put a little bit of water on the stain and rub it in and let the soap do it’s job. After about 10 minutes, grab a wash cloth and gently rub away the stain.
While these tips may offer a fix for the moment, don’t forget that throwing your shirt in the wash is the only way to make sure that the stain is really gone.
