On clothes and fabric, lipstick stains can be hard to remove. But WD-40 makes it easier.


Lipstick stains can be very difficult to remove. If you find yourself with lipstick stains on your clothes or any type of fabric, an easy way to remove them is by using WD-40.

How to do it: Spray a generous amount of WD-40 onto the lipstick stains. Let it sit for a few minutes and throw it in the washing machine.

Why this works: WD-40 contains Stoddard Solvent (also called White spirit) which works to dissolve oil and grease. As lipstick is oil-based, lipstick stains need to be treated with more than just soap and water.

Heavy-duty cleaners, like Lestoil, will also remove lipstick stains as it contains the same Stoddard Solvent ingredient as WD-40.
