Nail polish or lipstick stains are so stubborn that they cannot be removed with ordinary soap or detergent, and we have to dry clean our clothes to remove these stains. But you can clean them at home using petroleum jelly, shaving cream and many other things.
A mixture of ammonia and baking soda together is very effective against these stains. Today, we are going to tell you some home remedies to remove nail polish and lipstick stains from your favourite clothes.
Nail polish remover
Don’t panic if your clothes get stained with nail polish. Put nail polish remover on the stain and rub it until it disappears.
Cleanse with Rubbing Alcohol
