Question: How do I remove lipstick stains from clothes?
Here's how to remove lipstick stains from clothes:
Start by treating the oily/waxy component of the stain with a pre-treater like Shout
, Resolve or any stain remover. Then rub with heavy-duty liquid detergent or a paste made of powdered detergent and water. Scrub stain lightly and rinse in hot water. Next, wash in the hottest water suitable for the fabric using detergent and an all-fabric bleach
to remove the dye in the stain.
If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
