How do you remove lip balm stains from clothes?
A mix of equal parts water and white vinegar would work (you’ll only need a few tablespoons), or mix a little dish soap with some water. Apply your pre-treatment to the stain and let it sit for at least half an hour, and as long as overnight if you want.
Can Chapstick stain clothes?
Despite how innocuous it may seem, lip balm can in fact stain your clothes. Lip balm or Chapstick is mainly oil or wax-based, which means like any oil based substance, it can leave behind a residue on fabric. Wax and oil based materials tend to liquify when coming into contact with high heat.
How do you get Carmex out of clothes?
What do I do? We recommend spot-treating with Era® Plus laundry detergent or Dawn® dish soap, allowing it to soak for about 30 minutes. Launder as usual, and repeat if necessary. You can also take your clothes to a dry cleaner.
What is the best stain remover?
Here are the best stain removers:

- Best eco-friendly: Earth Friendly Stain and Odor Remover Spray.

How do you make homemade stain remover?
Step 1 – Add 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide and ½ cup of dish liquid to a clean spray bottle. I love Dawn dish liquid for this stain remover because of its amazing grease fighting power, but you can absolutely use an all-natural dish liquid like this one if you like. Step 2 – Mix well before each use.
Will OxiClean remove ChapStick stains?
Follow the package directions and mix a solution of oxygen bleach (such as OxiClean, Clorox 2 or Nellie’s Natural Oxygen Brightener) and warm water. Completely submerge the stained garment and allow it to soak for at least two hours; overnight is even better. This will remove the dye. Wash and dry the fabrics as usual.
What is an enzyme based stain remover?
Laundry enzyme presoaks are a pre-washing stain removal treatment used to break down protein stains like grass, blood, and baby formula so they can be more efficiently removed during the regular wash cycle. A presoak is necessary when clothes are heavily soiled or stained with oil, protein or tannin stains.
How do you get a dryer stain out of clothes?
If the fabric softener-stained clothes already went through the dryer, mix a solution of oxygen-based bleach and warm water following package directions. Submerge the stained items and allow them to soak for at least four hours or overnight and then wash as usual without any detergent or fabric softener.
Can you use chapstick after it went through the wash?
Chapstick (whatever the brand) is great for chapped lips, but not so great for washers, dryers, and clothes. These tubes are prone to either leaking or breaking open inside the machine, which then gets the lip balm all over your clothes.
How do you get grease spots out of clothes?
If the stain is fresh and hasn’t been through the washer and dryer yet, sprinkle baking soda on top of the grease. If it has set, pour enough dish soap onto the stain to cover it well. Leave the baking soda or dish soap on the clothing for about 5-10 minutes.
What happened to Carmex hydrating lotion?
Unfortunately, Carmex skin care has been discontinued. You may still be able to purchase a 1 oz. version of Pleasant Scent Hydrating Lotion at Dollar General.
