A touch of lipstick can really make you look your best, but not when it gets on your blouse. With a little help from Tide, you can kiss lipstick stains goodbye.
Remove Excess:Brush off any excess from the garment before placing a clean, dry cloth on top of the lipstick stain. Dab the back of the stain with dish soap on a damp cloth. Be careful not to transfer lipstick back onto garment. Rinse the garment under running water.
Dose:Use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the lipstick stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
Special Care for Tough Lipstick Stains
Lipstick stains rank pretty high among the most-difficult-to-remove category. That's because they're not only brightly colored, but also oil-based. The key to treating lipstick stains is to act fast, but even if your stain has had some time to set, you're not out of luck. Developed from years of laundry know-how, Tide Ultra OXI High-Efficiency Liquid detergent fights grease stains with its built-in pre-treaters and enzymes to help save your favorites from a stray lipstick smear. Just avoid drying the garment until you're satisfied that the stain has dissolved, as heat will likely set the stain permanently.
