Washable Fabrics

Fabrics like Cotton, nylon, acrylic fabric, modacrylic, linen, polyester, spandex and olefin are washable fabrics. The stains from liquid foundation can be removed from these fabrics in the following ways:

 

  • Use a stiff bristled brush and then sweep the stain from the clothes with light strokes. After using the brush blot up the excess stain. With this method, take care that the stain does not spread.

 

  • You can use a dry spotter to remove the stain. At first apply a dry spotter to the area of liquid foundation stain. Then cover the area with a cloth dampened with dry spotter. Continue checking on the stain often and then brush it in light strokes. Then change the cover on the stain with another cloth dampened with dry spotter. Continue brushing and covering the stain until there is no more stain.

 

  • You can also flush the stain with dry cleaning solvent like Afta Cleaning Fluid. Flush means applying the stain remover so that it loosens the staining material and also the residue from stain removers.

 

  • To remove oil – free foundation you can use shaving cream. Add a little alcohol to it so that the stain gets off easily. After using the shaving cream wash it to remove the stain completely.

 

  • If the foundation is oil based then use dish detergent on the spot before treating it with shaving cream.
