If you are used to applying your own makeup, you are probably not new to makeup stains. Because makeup is made to stay put, it can be tricky to remove makeup stains from clothing. To get liquid eyeliner stains off your clothes, you have to use a method that will remove both the color and the oil. Removing the stains doesn't have to be expensive because you can use products your already have in your home.

Using Bar Soap

Wet the liquid eyeliner stain on your piece of clothing with water. Treat the stain as soon as possible because the longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove.

Blot the stain with a piece of bar soap until it starts getting lighter and eventually disappears.

Rinse away any soap residue with warm water and wash the piece of clothing as you normally would.

Using Pre-Wash Stain Remover

Apply a pre-wash stain-removing liquid to the eyeliner stain and allow it to seep into the fabric for 1 minute.

Fill your washing machine with hot water and chlorine bleach if the clothing is white. Use color bleach if the stain is on a colored piece of clothing.

Launder the stained fabric as you normally would. Check that the stain has fully been removed from the fabric before placing your piece of clothing in dryer. Repeat the treatment if the stain is still visible.
