  • So have no fear! With Ultra-Guard’s lipstick stain removal guide, your carpet and upholstery won’t be scared of encountering a little gloss from time to time.

    Rubbing alcohol is an extremely effective lipstick stain remover for fabric and surfaces that can't be machine washed, such as upholstery or furniture. Apply some rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball and use it to wipe away the lipstick stain. Rinse with cold water afterward to remove any residue. This method is not recommended for clothing, as rubbing alcohol can damage some of the more delicate fabrics.

  • Below is a video which gives lipstick removal stain tips for washable clothing.

    Her main suggestion is to use denatured alcohol on the stain. (Hint -- that suggestion has come up in almost all the videos above, meaning it typically works pretty well!)


    She then suggests to follow this with a dab of dishwashing liquid rubbed into the stain, followed by a stain stick.

    Next, she suggests washing the garment in cold water.

    This can be a good idea if you don't believe you have thoroughly removed the lipstick stain yet, because heat can set the stain making it even tougher to remove. On the other hand, though, lipstick has a lot of grease in it, and such stains typically are easier to remove with very hot water (assuming the garment can handle it), because the heat helps dissolve and loosen up the grease and oils within the lipstick.

    In addition, as always, make sure the stain is completely out before you put it in the dryer.

    She suggests, to be really conservative, to not place the item in the dryer, but instead to let it air dry just to confirm after it has dried that the lipstick stain has been completely removed.



    As you can see, there are lots of ways to remove these stains.

    I hope these videos have given you some good ideas for how to remove lipstick stains from your clothes.

Lip Color: Balm, Gloss, Lipstick, Stain, and More

Below I've gathered several tips, including a couple of videos, about how to remove lipstick stains from clothing.


Basically, like with many other types of stain removal instructions, there are several possible ways to remove these stains that work.

Deciding which method you will choose includes what materials you have on hand, what fabric the stain is on, and also some variables you may not be able to control like what type of lipstick got all over your clothes.

That is one of the problems with sharing how to remove various stains -- although typically a certain method works, all lipsticks do not contain exactly the same ingredients. There are different shades, pigments, oil components, etc., all of which can effect what will actually work.

Therefore, my best advice is to try what you think will work, using some of the suggestions below, or my advice on the , and then try something else if that doesn't work. To make sure you don't set the stain, make sure not to dry the clothing in the dryer until you confirm the stain is completely removed.

In addition, always start with the gentlest method you can for stain removal. There is no point in using something harsh to remove lipstick stains when something gentle will work just as well!

Good luck! If you have a tip which you don't see below, I would love to hear it, and will be happy to add it to the page for others to benefit from your knowledge. You can , or read other tips which have already been submitted, such as for other surfaces besides clothing.
