I have washed a lipstick

things (surprisingly fewer than expected, but still things) have lipstick on them. Colour. Oil. Some together, some separate.

All nicely baked in by the tumble dryer since it rained all day

help me

You have my sympathy. I dyed all of ds's underpants pink last week. Even the navy ones have a pink glow. He's not happy

Douse them with hairspray and wash again - it really does work.

does the hairspray have to dry first or do you chuck it in wet?

weebleswobble Wed 06-Aug-08 21:15:16

Chuck it in wet...you've probably done one or the other by now! Did it take it out?

you own lipstick, yet have to go out to buy hairspray?

yes my locks are so flowing and natural hmm

I found a stain devil at the bottom of a drawer which said it worked on lipstick so spent a happy time slathering it all over our clothes

it worked perfectly on everything except dh's shirt sad

I shall give the hairspray a try on that but tbh I think it is stained, rather than blotched
