How To Get Makeup Stains Out Of Clothes
Not much can be more frustrating than trying to get makeup stains out of clothes when you're not sure what the most effective way to do so is. Here are six easy steps to show you successfully how to get makeup stains out of clothes.
What you'll need:
The first thing that you need to do is figure out what type of makeup is on the garment. How to get a makeup stain out of clothes is determined by which one of the two main types of makeup it is. First you have non-oily makeups such as powders and eye shadows. Things such as lipstick and mascara are oily makeups.
Next you'll want to put a small amount of makeup remover on the stain. This will help loosen the makeup from the fabric and allow it to come off much easier and unnoticed. Just like with the wipes, make sure you test this on a small section of your garment first.
Next, regardless of the type of makeup stain it is, you'll want to rub the stained area with your wipes. If nothing more specific is available you can use baby wipes, but there are so many different types of clothing wipes available now that you can carry a small package in your purse or your car for emergencies. As with anything you put on your clothing, make sure you test the wipes on a small concealed part of your article of clothing.
How to get makeup stains out of clothing can be time consuming if you have an oily makeup stain. It can still be done and is very simple, but it does take a little work. You will want to take your plain, white toothpaste and dab and rub it onto the stain with your clean cloth. With a little bit of effort this will have you lipstick or mascara stain removed in no time.
If you are trying to remove a non-oily stain from your clothing then you'll want to use your bar of soap and a slightly damp cloth to brush off any powdered makeup from the garment. You'll need to take extra care not to wipe too hard - that can smear the makeup into the garment which makes it much more difficult to remove.
Another way how to get makeup stains out of clothes for non-oily makeup is to use a little bit of shampoo or liquid detergent and gently rub it into the stain. This acts kind of like a gentle wash on the specific spot that is stained. In order to dry up the wet spots you may use a hair dryer quickly, but be sure not to allow it to set in any stains by holding it on too long.
