It never fails, you get dressed, do your makeup and decide to wear a red lip that day and decide that the outfit you chose does not work and need to change your shirt. Or, your shopping and need to try on a shirt that goes over your head on the day you’re wearing your reddest lip. In our case that would be MAC’s Ruby Woo smeared all over all the white clothes everywhere.
USE DISH SOAP TO REMOVE LIPSTICK
This is one of the best, if not the best methods for removing lipstick stains.
Try to treat the stain as soon as it happens by covering the stain with liquid dish soap. We like Dawn best for this. It makes sense that this works the best since dish soap was made to bust through grease, and lipstick is full of oils. Dish soap is also safe to use without the worry of staining or discoloring your clothes.
USE HAIRSPRAY TO REMOVE LIPSTICK
This is an oldie but goodie trick and one that many makeup artists use on set.
Spray the stain with hairspray and let it set for 15 to 20 minutes. Using a warm, damp cloth, gently wipe (do not rub) the hairspray off of the stain (the hairspray will loosen and neutralize the lipstick stain). Throw your shirt in the wash and wash as usual.
You can also do a combo of hairspray as soon as you can to neutralize the stain, spot treating with dish soap and washing as usual.
