#Laundry #Stain Removal #Tip: Lipstick - Don't rub the smudge - it will only grind in the stain. Instead try to dab the stain with a little makeup remover.

#Laundry #Stain Removal #Tip: Ballpoint pen ink - Ballpoint pen ink is difficult to remove in an standard wash but fixing the back of the stain with hairspray should give a much improved result (check it won't mark the fabric 1st by spraying on an unseen area).
