"Your strawberry lipgloss? No, I didn't see it. I swear!"
But I don't worry too much because I am the StainMaster...er...StainMistress!
To get rid of a lipstick, marker, pen, ink, pretty much anything stain:
- If the stain is on a piece of fabric or clothing, place a clean, light-colored cloth behind the satin.
- Saturate a clean cloth with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
- BLOT (don't rub!) the stain.
- Frequently change places on your cloths--the color will lift off of the fabric or carpet and onto the cloth, so you want to use a clean place on the cloth to make sure all the color comes off.
- That's it. As the alcohol evaporates, the smell will go away.
To remove a lipgloss stain:
- Because lipgloss is sticky and greasy, rubbing alcohol won't really work.
- Using a credit card, spoon, or something similar, try to scrape off as much of the gloss as possible.
- Using a clean cloth, generously apply toothpaste (yep, toothpaste) to the carpet. I used Arm and Hammer toothpaste since it was white. I haven't tried a colored toothpaste, but I would use any white kind just because I wouldn't want the toothpaste to leave a stain!
- Now use a damp cloth to work in the paste, and begin to wipe it away.
- Your carpet or fabric will be spot-free and minty fresh!
To remove a chapstick stain:
- Using a credit card, spoon, or something similar, try to scrape off as much of the lip balm as possible.
- Chapstick is mostly wax, so I find it best to apply a wax remover like Goo Gone, Goof off or Un-Do.
- Let it sit for a while
- Wash in hottest water safe for fabric
- Don't dry the clothing until the Chapstick stain is gone...that makes it set in
