Lil gungho got ahold of his sisters lipstick and now has bright red lipstick all over a nice white shirt. What can I use to get this out?

Wife says Hairspray?

Hot Shot spray (get it at Home Depot). Blue can, orange top

I'll give it a try thank you ... keep the ideas flowing just in case.

White shirt? 1/4 cup of bleach in the wash with your next load of whites.

Greased Lightning will take out just about any stain. I use it regularly.

hair spray took some of it out. I have it soaking now, going to go to the store tomorrow and buy some hot shot and some greased lightning. Where can I find greased lightning at?
Can;t do bleach as the sleeves are dark blue.
Sissy got a lecture on keeping her things out of his reach, I hope she does better.

Greased lightning is usually located with household cleaning supplies in grocery stores or Walmart.

I keep a bottle of Lestoil handy for grease, tar based stains. Pour just enough to cover it, and rub. I use an old tooth brush if necessary. If it is a real mess, I'll rinse area out in sink, maybe try some 409 and repeat. I find this works for the black penetrating oil we have at work that Shout and the rest don't even faze.

I've been doing my own laundry for 20+ years, FWIW.

Lighter fluid might do it.

...and, no, not to burn it out.

WD 40 Saves the Wedding Dress

WD-40 once saved the day for us by removing a lipstick stain from a wedding dress. The bride's mother did a test on the inside of the hem of the polyester fabric of the dress by spraying WD40 on a cotton swab and rubbing the stain. Once she removed the stain, she went over the area with a small amount of soap and water on a damp cloth. Finally, with another cloth, she dampened the stained area with water only. After she air-dried it and assured that the test was successful, she removed the lipstick stain from the front of the dress. Professional dry cleaners she contacted stated that they didn't have a good track record with removing lipstick stains and were hesitant to make an attempt.

Yep I am pretty good at blood stains myself, which is a good things since he is aboy.
The stain is fading fast, as much as I have spent on stain removers, I could have bought a new shirt! Cept they don't have them anymore.

No! It's a quest at this point. Never give up!

I HAVE WON!!!

of course I had to try several different things, all taking a little more and a little more out. My last resort was to take an old toothbrush and some Tide, scrub really hard then rewash. It did the trick, but if I had not gotten it faded as much as I did before, I know it never would have worked.

Blood stains are easy! Hydrogen peroxide baby! Treat the wound and the stain at the same time!

Yesterdy I was hooking the hydraulic hoses on a farm implement, and accidentally sprayed myself w/ hydraulic fluid. I'll report later on how a liberal application of whatever-brand-they-had-at-NAPA mechanic's hand cleaner (I think it was GOJO brand) works for getting hydraulic fluid out of swimming trunks.

Rub ice on blood stains.... Don't ask me how I know this.
