Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to help remove lipstick stains.

 

- Don't wear bright red lipstick.  Go for a more natural look.
 
- Blot, don't rub, when removing lipstick stains.  Rubbing will spread the stain. When you do scrub the stain, work from the outside to the inside of the stain.
 
- Try a mild detergent like Dawn.  Gently scrub it, leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse.
 
- Try blotting with rubbing alcohol.
