How to get makeup out of clothes

Always test OxiClean™ on an inconspicuous area first. Rinse, and allow to dry. Safe on colorfast fabrics only. Always follow manufacturer’s instructions for water temperature and for cleaning garment or item. Do not use on wool, wool blends, silk, silk blends, leather or on fabrics labeled dry clean only.


OxiClean™ works best in warm to hot water. If washing with cold water, first dissolve OxiClean™ in 16 oz. of warm to hot water. Add to cold water.


Treat stains while fresh. Always rinse well with cool water. Do not place fabric that has not been thoroughly rinsed, into dryer.


Some stains require repeated or longer treatments. Adding more OxiClean™ powder than directed increases the risk of color loss.


MIX Fill scoop to line 2 to 4 per 1 gallon of water. Submerge stained items in solution after dissolved. Line 2 for typical stains or Line 4 for extra-tough stains. For fresh makeup stain removal, use cold water; for set makeup stains, use the hottest water the item will allow (see garment tag).


SOAK 1-6 hours. Depending on severity of stain, some stains may require more time to soak. For best results soak for 6 hours.


WASH as normal with detergent and OxiClean™.
