How do you get mascara stains out? I’m forever getting mascara stains on my pillow cases and towels (even when I think I’ve cleaned my face properly). Even pre-wash spray doesn’t seem to work. Any tips?

  • Get a good eye makeup remover I take it off before I shower and then after my shower I give my eyes another wipe over with the remover this seems to be working for me …before I had residue under my eyes and on my pillow and towels

  • A good soak in Napisan. It may need repeating but it should get it out eventually

  • I would soak it for a few hours and scrub on the stain.

  • Soak in Napisan as soon as the stains appear. Using pre wash spray will help too. A repeat of a Napisan soak may be needed

  • Really interesting comments read on this!

  • I get the same problem. I find soaking in nappy sand
    Helps.:-) it is so hard to get out.

  • Try some soaker on the machine over night

  • try the make up remover on the pillow case or towels

  • Use a separate eye make up remover. If you already have stained pillow cases, use napisan to get it out.

  • Water based eye make up remover & Vanish pre wash stain removal spray usually work well for leftover make up stains.

  • how did it all go

  • there are some good comments here

  • You should be washing off your makeup before you go to bed and as part of your routine a special eye makeup remover

  • thats a hard one napisan give it a good soak

  • Helpful tips here, I use good quality mascara and havent had issues with it coming out of clothes.
