How to Remove Lipstick Stains From Fabric. Lipstick on your shirt or collar? Here are a few simple steps to help remove lipstick from clothing.

Things You'll Need

  • White Soft Dry Cloth
  • Denatured Alcohol
  • Stain Brushes
  • Stain Removers
  • Dishwashing Liquid

Dab stain very lightly with denatured alcohol using a soft, white cloth.

Rub dishwashing detergent gently into the stain with your finger.

Try using a stain stick and leaving it on for several minutes before washing, if the mark is stubborn.

Wash fabric as usual. It would be best to air dry the garment so that the stain does not set in. This way you can take it to the dry cleaner if it does not come out.

Ask your dry cleaner for help if all else fails.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you are out and don't have access to alcohol, leave the stain alone until you get home. If you're desperate, try dabbing it with cold water.
  • Remember to dab, not rub, as rubbing can ground in the stain.
  • Remember if a fabric is dry clean only it is best to take it to your dry cleaner. Do not pretreat. Pretreating can make the cleaning process hard for your cleaners and hinder them from removing the stain for you.
