Does lip balm wash out of clothes?
If you’ve spotted some ChapStick® on the inside of your washer or dryer, it should be fairly easy to remove this residue. Simply scrub at the spots with hot water and a little laundry detergent. Some vinegar might help you remove waxy residue, as well.
How do you get out a lip balm stain?
Steps to Clean
- Scrape off excess foreign material.
- Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the dry cleaning solvent.
- Blot until the solvent is absorbed.
- If the stain remains, mix one tablespoon of liquid dishwashing detergent and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water.
Does melted 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 Blistex out of clothes after drying?
Try freezing the item overnight. If there are chunks they can be carefully scraped off. Then use regular blue dawn dish detergent and with your fingers gently massage it into each stain. Let it sit for 15 minutes, rinse on cold water.
How do you get Burt’s Bees ChapStick out of clothes?
Burt’s Bees recommends using hot water to remove lip balm stains.
- Wash the soiled garment in a washing machine in hot water and a scoop of laundry detergent.
- Boil water in a large pot and remove from heat.
- Apply a stain-removing product to the stained area if the stain still won’t come out.
How do you get Carmex out of clothes after drying?
Kim, if you have already dried these items in the dryer, there’s really not much you can do. (Heat will set the stain). If not, put a couple drops of Dawn dishwashing liquid on each spot, scrub a little and then wash as normal. Dawn is excellent in getting out oil/grease stains.
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 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.
