A swipe of red is heart-stopping on lips but heartbreaking on clothes. Yet that stray ‘Cherries in the Snow’ needn’t be kiss of death for your best button-down. To remove red lipstick in three quick steps, follow this easy protocol:

  1. Pat (don’t rub!) the spot with a paper towel to remove as much of the pigment as possible.

  2. Apply rubbing alcohol to cut through the makeup’s oils.

  3. Finally, a drop of dish soap and a plain water rinse erases any final traces of residue—so you can turn that crimson frown upside down!
