Your clothes don’t have to be ruined after a cosmetic mishap (Photo: Getty Images/iStockphoto)
When the weather gets better, we all pull bright white spring and summer clothes out of the closet.
While these colors look great in the sun, they are also more susceptible to staining.
There’s nothing worse than walking around in a tight white t-shirt and seeing your makeup smeared around your cleavage.
But don’t worry, there are plenty of products in the house to get rid of all the stains.
If you can, get there as soon as you can. If you pack before the product begins to penetrate the fabric, you have the best chance of removing all traces.
Place the garment on a flat surface with an old absorbent towel underneath to reduce friction.
Then use one of these proven methods to wash it.
Since most remedies are oil-based, they create a lot of mess and are difficult to remove if spilled.
However, using an anti-grease product should remove the stain.
Wet the stain and take shaving cream, press enough to cover the stain. Use a soft brush (a clean toothbrush will do) and gently scrub the stain.
Rinse and check for stains. If not, try again, but this time add a small amount of clear hand sanitizer to your mixture. Once you can no longer see it, you can put the item in the washing machine as usual.
Many makeup artists will agree that hairspray has uncanny effectiveness when it comes to lipstick stains.
Place a roller under the stain, then apply an alcohol-based lacquer and let it sit until dry.
Then wipe the stain with a damp cloth and it should come off easily.
If it’s very stubborn, dab a cloth with alcohol or hand sanitizer and it should absorb it.
Mascara and eyeliner stains
To remove stubborn traces of mascara and eyeliner, it is best to use a product designed to remove these cosmetics from the eyes.
Get a water-based (not oil-based) makeup remover (like Garnier Micellar Water), apply it to the stain and rub it in with a cloth or soft brush.
This should remove even waterproof eye makeup.
First of all, make sure everything stays dry when you pour out the powder. Shake and blow on items to loosen any eyeshadow or powder residue.
If any residue remains, make a mixture of two parts water and one part vinegar. Stick this on your clothes until the stains disappear.
