We love makeup, but getting stains on your shirt? Not so much. Foundation ingredients are made for long wear, which causes them to be a big stain culprit. We can’t even count the number of shirts that have been ruined by a smear of foundation. Nothing is worse than having a cute outfit prepared for the day, only to find it completely ruined by a huge splotch of foundation on the collar. Next thing you know, you're struggling to find another shirt to wear and you're going to be late for work. Don’t worry because we have a stain removal trick so you don’t have to put those shirts to waste.
For Powder Foundation:
You want to get off any excess powder without rubbing into the shirt as soon as possible. Next, make a mix of white vinegar and water to remove the stain. Test it out on a small spot before going for the whole smear. Once you dab it into the fabric, launder it as usual.
For Liquid Foundation:
If the foundation ingredients are oil-free, use shaving cream on the stained area. If the stain won’t lift, add a bit of alcohol to the shaving cream. If the foundation ingredients are oil-based, use liquid detergent to counter the oil in your foundation. Finally, throw it in the wash to really get the stain out.
