Makeup Stains on Clothing

My ex bought real makeup for our 5 1/2 yr old dd, and let her put it on at his house, unsupervised, and she got makeup all over the front of a white shirt. Is there a way to get the stains out of her shirt and make it white again? I have not washed it yet, if that helps any. Thank you for your suggestions.

I'd use an old toothbrush, starting with Almay eye-makeup remover, then using Ultra Dawn undiluted.

Then rinse and if any remains, use alcohol, then use cream peroxide for 4-24 hours (do not get on skin), keeping stained areas wet in plastic bag, if needed. Rinse again and use Ultra Dawn one more time along with white chalk rubbed all over the stained area first before this particular wash. Wash/rinse. It should be lifted at any of these stages. Last wash/rinse is imperative because any stain removing can create holes in cloth if left unwashed/rinsed well. Good luck and God bless you. (09/03/2006)
