REMOVING MAKE-UP FROM PILLOW CASES OR BED LINENS

REMOVING MAKE-UP FROM PILLOW CASES OR BED LINENS

Removing make-up stains from pillow cases or bed linens has to be one of our biggest challenges. No matter how many cleaning items we have in our buckets we could never have enough with all the tasks that come our way. Even so….detecting the stains before washing the item is also tough. King size sheets and duvet covers are so big that a smudge of eyeliner or face powder stains can go undetected and then it’s almost too late.
Light colored face clothes and hand towels have been ruined by removing certain types of makeup that cause bleaching effects, rendering the towels unusable for guests. We are constantly looking for solutions and simple tricks. Keep in mind that different types of make-up will respond to different types of cleaning solutions, and successful removal is dependent on knowing which solution works best for the type of stain you have.
Lipstick is a mixture of waxes, pigments and oils. Foundation or base used to cover and smooth complexion are oil and emollient based. Powder base are made of a lighter oil. Mascara is most commonly made from wax thickeners, water and pigment. Cleaning solutions are based on different types of ingredients.

Cleaning Solution: To Remove Lipstick:  Rubbing (Isoprophyl) Alcohol or Witch Hazel

To Remove Mascara and Eye-liner:  Dawn or Ajax dishwashing liquid (and a drop or two of water).

To Remove Liquid Foundation:  3% hydrogen peroxide solution.

To Remove Blush, Eye Shadow or Powdered Foundation (non-oil based):  Mild laundry detergent (liquid) WITHOUT bleach/bleach alternative

I have tried grease cutter, soaking in Clorox-2 and laundry stain remover such as Shout or Tide. Continuous applications of different products can cause further damage to the linens or pillow cases. Certain fabrics are also a consideration. If all else fails, try taking your item to a professional cleaner.

My wife is always getting makeup on our pillows at night. We have tried so many different things to get it out but it is being pretty stubborn. It is interesting how some soaps will actually remove it and some won't -- they are different! We will try one of these ideas!
