How to remove lip gloss stains from clothing

You're surrounded by it every day, and you could unknowingly become its next victim: lip gloss. No matter how careful women are when putting on their clothes, there is always a chance that the slightest brush against a glossy lip can unintentionally end up on their clothes. Men aren't exempt from lip gloss stains either. A light, glossy kiss on the cheek can easily end up on their clothes if they absentmindedly touch their faces. Lip gloss-stained clothes may seem like a hopeless, greasy mess. However, you may be able to salvage them with proper care.
