Makeup tends to contain oil
, which will make it difficult to clean up. But it’s not impossible. Here’s how to tackle each product.
Let’s start with the lipstick. You’re going to need dish soap and a soft brush (like a toothbrush) or sponge. Apply the soap to the stain, let it soak in, and then gently rub it. Repeat until the stain is gone.
For liquid foundation, you can use the same materials. The process will be similar, except you’ll add a bit of warm water into the mix this time. Apply the soap to the stain, dip your tool into warm water, then gently rub the seat. The stain should get smaller and smaller until poof—it’s gone. After that, use a dry cloth or a paper towel to dab the spot until it’s dry.
Last but not least, the nail polish. This one is not as easy to remove. You’re going to want to put on a pair of gloves before you begin. Then, grab a rag (or towel you hate) and some acetone.
Dip a corner of the rag or towel into the acetone, then ring it out carefully. Dab—do not rub—the nail polish. It should pale, and then you can move to a dry spot of your towel to try and absorb the rest of it. Repeat as needed.
WARNING: If you have leather or delicate fabric seats don’t use acetone. Even on regular cloth seats, you may want to test the acetone on an inconspicuous area to ensure it won’t discolor the fabric before using it anywhere else in your car.
