Week 5: We Kick Balls

Home Remedies for Lipstick Stain Removal... The key when removing the stain is to work gently from the outer edge of the stain inward. 
1) Put the item, stain side down on a clean paper towel or something similar that you won't mind absorbing the red colored lipstick; 2) Dab the pre-treater, degreaser or solvent (listed below) that you are using onto the back of the stained area; 3) Use another paper towel and apply pressure to your garment which will force the cleaning solution (and the stain) into the paper towel beneath it; 4) Replace the paper towel to keep it absorbing new traces of the lipstick the solution is removing and keep it from spreading to other areas; and 5) Rinse the garment and launder as usual when all traces of the stain have been removed.
Rubbing Alcohol: Start with alcohol, which works well. Do not rub, or you'll spread the mark. Simply take a clean, white cloth and moisten it with alcohol. Then, blot the lipstick stain, which will disappear.
Dishwashing Detergent:  Dab on a little detergent, let it set for about 10 minutes, and then gently begin working on the stain from the outside edges inward.
Ammonia: Start by blotting off as much of the stain as you can, using plain water. When done, use a cotton swab moistened with ammonia to dab at the stain. Once the stain begins to fade, wash the shirt by hand in warm soapy water.
Hairspray: This is an old trick used by women (and men) for years. As long as the fabric will permit it, spray right onto the stain, and then let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes.
