Hello, everyone. My name is Joi, freelance makeup artist in New York, and today I'm going to show you all how to remove lipstick from a white blouse. So of course I've got my soiled blouse here, I've got some detergent and I'm also going to be using a couple of paper towels. So the first thing you want to do is make sure that you actually don't rub the lipstick because what that's going to do is just spread it around, it's not going to actually remove it. So the next step would be to if you have some spray a pretreater on the, the stain and let it sit. If you don't you can actually take a detergent and you want to saturate the stain, the lipstick stain so you make sure you get a good amount on there and just sort of spread it around. At this point you're just going to leave it to sit because what you want to happen is you want the detergent to break down the pigments and the oils in the lipstick so you're going to let it sit about 10 minutes and then you're going to come back later place a paper towel underneath because you don't want any transfer from the stain to go through the back onto what ever surface you're cleaning on. So place the paper towel there and then you're just going to take another paper towel and you're going to start dabbing. Again, don't rub just make sure that you're dabbing. And as you can see it's starting to come off on to the paper towel and you just want to continue this motion until it's removed. Now as you can see our stain is still here because we actually haven't let it sit, so I'm just basically trying to show you the technique, but if you try this at home it should work out for you because you'll allow it to soak and the detergent will break down the ingredients in the lipstick. So hope this all works out for you all. Thanks you all for watching and my name is Joi. Have a good day.
