My daughter get lip gloss on one of her good shirts. I tried the Shout and other sprays. What else can I do?
Here are some easy solutions from someone on yahoo answers. Lipstick and lipgloss are both oil-based so the same solutions can be used for both.
Start with alcohol, which works well. Do not rub, or you'll spread the
mark. Simply take a clean, white cloth and moisten it with alcohol.
Then, blot the lipstick stain, which will disappear. Another home
remedy is dishwashing detergent such as Sunlight and Dawn, both
formulated to fight grease. For this method of lipstick stain removal,
dab on a little detergent, let it set for about 10 minutes, and then
gently begin working on the stain from the outside edges inward.
Another great home remedy for removing lipstick stains is ammonia. Just
about everyone has ammonia at home for cleaning and if not, it can be
found at any grocery store for just a few dollars. Again, start by
blotting off as much of the stain as you can, using plain water. When
done, use a cotton swab moistened with ammonia to dab at the stain.
Once the stain begins to fade, wash the shirt by hand in warm soapy
water, preferably using Dawn dishwashing detergent.
Finally, hairspray is an old trick used by women (and men) for years.
As long as the fabric will permit it, spray right onto the stain, and
then let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes. In most cases, a clean
cloth moistened with warm water is all you need to wipe the stain away.
If your find this method of lipstick stain removal does not completely
remove the stain, repeat and then wash by hand using Dawn or Sunlight.
