Get a damp cloth and put a blob of dish soap on it - it will come right out. I wear red lipstick and I know. :) (03/16/2007)

My mom used dish washing soap and it came out in less than 30 seconds! I haven't tried anything else but I think dish washing soap would be the best! If your in a hurry, just use dish washing soap! Since she used it, we carry wet wipes in the car and a bottle of dish washing soap just in case! Thanks! (09/05/2007)
I just wanted to say 'THANK YOU , THANK YOU' to all those who suggested rubbing the affected area with Dawn dish soap, soaking it HOT water, washing and repeating as needed. I had an entire stick of dark red glitter lipstick go through the washer AND dryer with a load of designer jeans. The jeans looked as though someone had thrown paint on them. I was beside myself. I did the above treatment (repeating twice) and salvage each and every pair! (12/28/2007)
Another option is to spray hairspray on the item for 15 minutes and wash out with warm water. Works every time! (02/20/2008)
Yes! The Dawn dish soap and warm water worked a miracle! I don't know how many times the clothing was washed and dried, but it ALL came out! (05/13/2008)
Thank you so much for giving the hint for Red lipstick. My three year old got red lipstick on her dance costume at the rehearsal. With a little warm water and Dawn it came out like Magic. Thank you so much! (06/05/2008)
