Mascara, lipstick and foundation stains are really tough stains. To remove them effectively, they need pre-treatment with a detergent designed to remove greasy stains. One of the most effective solutions to remove mascara, lipstick or foundation stains from clothes is Ariel powder. So follow the instructions below to learn how to remove lipstick stains from clothes, as well as other pesky mascara, foundation, or other make up stains, at the first go.
Cosmetics are made to help you look your best. Yet when they get onto your clothes, they can do the opposite. Lipstick, blusher, mascara and even sunscreen have a habit of staining your favourites. Cosmetics are meant to be temporary, not permanent.
Yet while you may be told that bleach is the best tool for makeup stain removal, Ariel knows another way that doesn’t involve experimenting with your fabrics. Watch our step by step guide on how to get rid of cosmetic stains from clothing, or read the instructions below.
Removing cosmetic stains
Prepare a Soaking Solution
Next, pre-treat the makeup stained garment. Fill a sink or bucket with warm water and add half a scoop of Ariel Washing Powder. Mix the solution by hand until the detergent is completely dissolved.
Add your makeup stained garments to the solution and leave to soak for an hour. If the stained garment keeps floating to the top, place a white towel on top of it to keep it fully immersed in the soaking solution.
Preparing for wash
Gently wring out the excess water before adding it to your wash with similar items.
Add detergent based on the instructions on your pack.
Load your garment into the washing machine with other, similar items and wash on your usual cycle, at the highest temperature shown on the care label.
After the wash cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
Effective stain removal on many stains
Of course, makeup stains aren’t the only stains likely to happen day to day. On a night out drinks will get spilt. At a restaurant, some dessert may land on your dress. Luckily makeup stains aren’t the only stains you can remove with Ariel.
