Tips for moms: Easy ways to clean the make up stain


Make-up stains on clothes are easy to remove if you act immediately and correctly.

Depending on the color of the garment and its quality, the solutions to clean the specific stain are as follows:

Use makeup remover wipes

Make-up remover wipes are not only suitable for removing make-up from the face but also from clothes. All you have to do is rub the stain until it is completely gone.

Use alcohol

Soak a cotton ball or the edge of a towel in rubbing alcohol and then rub the make-up stain. Alcohol is particularly effective at removing stains especially from lipstick, as alcohol can break down oily and waxy stains.

Use shaving cream

Apply a small amount of shaving cream to the stain and leave it on for a few minutes. Remove the cream and wash the stain with cold water.


What can you use to clean the make up stain.

Use a hair dryer

If you get powder on your clothes, don’t try to wipe it off right away. Try to blow dry as much as you can. Then with an old, dry toothbrush, clean the amount of powder that may have remained.

Use hairspray

Apply hairspray to the stain and let it dry (especially if the stain is from lipstick you will see immediate results). Allow to dry and then clean with a damp cloth. Note: hair sprays should contain alcohol to remove the stain.

Use soap and water

If all you have available is soap and water to remove a makeup stain, follow this procedure: rinse the stain with cold water, and rub the soap suds over the stain. Avoid using paper as it will ‘stick’ to the stain leaving a residue.
