- Scrape as much of the remaining lipstick off of the clothing as possible with a dull knife.
- Dampen a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and gently blot the stain. Do not rub the lipstick stain, as this may help set it. Rinse out the rubbing alcohol with cool water.
- Pour liquid dish soap onto any stain that still remains. Let the soap soak into the fabric for 10 to 15 minutes before gently rubbing the soap into the stain with your finger. Rinse the clothing with cool water until the water runs clear.
- Pour ammonia onto a cotton ball and rub it into the stain, starting from the outer edges of the stain and working towards the center. Rinse the clothing in cool water.
- Hand wash the clothing using a gentle detergent, paying special attention to the stained area.
- Hang the garment to air dry. Do not put the clothing through the dryer until you are sure the stain has been completely removed.
How to Take out a Lipstick Stain on Clothing
Lipstick stains can be tricky. A simple brush of your arm across your face, or the act of pulling a shirt over your head, can result in a lipstick stain. If you don't find the stain before the clothing goes through the wash, you may set it in and become permanent. Although greasy lipstick stains can take some time to remove, it is possible. To effectively treat a lipstick stain, treat the clothing as soon after the stain occurs as possible.
