Once in a while, you are bound to go to sleep with your makeup on. This not only has repercussions on the skin, but it also soils the pillowcases.

Luckily, we at Triple S, have a comprehensive fabric care system that will eliminate these stains and keep the pillowcase spotless. Listed below are ways to get makeup of your pillowcase without ruining it.

1. Don’t Touch Your Pillowcase

Once you find the pillow stains, you will be tempted to rub it off with their fingers. We highly recommend not doing this because it will only cause the stain to set in further.

2. Dampen and Lather

Take the pillowcase and lightly dampen it under cold water in the kitchen sink. Pour some detergent on the stained area and rub with fingers to form a lather (The lather will allow the stain to rise to the surface).

3. Blot and rinse

Now use a cleaning cloth to blot the stain. Blotting removes the stains that have risen to the surface. Run the pillowcase under warm water to get rinse off the excess soap.

4. Treat and Prepare

Before placing the pillowcase back, treat it with lemon juice (a natural alternative to a chemical cleaning product). Toss it into the washing machine with the rest of the sheets to be sure they are thoroughly cleaned.
