I did this and it worked!
If you're like me, you've put something on after you've done your makeup and gotten makeup on your outfit. I'm generally pretty careful and if I have to put something on over my head after putting my makeup on, I usually put a shower cap on over my face to prevent any mishaps. Every now and again though, I forget or think the hole is large enough and I won't have any issues ... I know you know what I mean.
Anyway, a new dress arrived in the mail the other day (yes, I am a BIG online shopper!) and I tried it on totally forgetting I had makeup on! I didn't have any trouble getting the dress on ... but getting it off was a challenge. I went to hang it up and noticed 3 brown smudges on the front of the dress. I PANICKED. Loved the dress, but if I can't get it off easily it goes in the "let me think about this purchase" pile ... but, there's no way to return something I've stained. I decided to keep the dress, but I also wanted to get the stains out asap - waiting to drop it off at the dry cleaners in the morning might mean that the stain "set". So, I googled and found the perfect formula!
1. Dampen the stained area with water.
2. Pour a couple drops of liquid dish soap on the stain.
3. Rub the detergent in with your fingers or a damp cloth.
4. Blot the area with a clean, dry towel.
5. Rinse the spot with cool water to remove the detergent.
This totally worked for me, but to be sure it does for you too - click here for the full step-by-step process.
Just a little something I thought you might find useful.
