  • Noxema or any coldcream or makeup remover should remove the stains. Then, a little bit of Dawn dishwashing liquid will remove the makeup remover.

    Tell your daughter that her happiness is worth more than any sweater. She's too beautiful to wear makeup anyway.

    The above solution will also work on your carpet. I hope she feels better. When you call her, tell her you got the makeup out of the carpet, even if you didn't, so that way she'll feel better. Tell her I said Happy Birthday, as will many other people here!

  • A product called Greased Lightning will get it out! I promise. Greased Lightning will get out just about anything, chocolate, make-up, even blood and it wont color fade things you use it on.

  • I was just going to say greased lightening but be careful it will fade things if you put it on dark clothes do it rght before you put them in the washer. if you put it on the carpet just put a lot of water on after an soak it up. it is awesome stuff and pretty cheap too.

  • Windex! Saturate the stain with windex blot with a paper towel and rinse with cold water. It will come out. Most of the time it will even work with an old stain and will not damage the clothes.
