Dear Home-Ec 101,
I washed and dried a load of darks with a tube of lip balm (Arbonne, if that makes a difference!), needless to say I have grease spots all over the clothes. How can I remove them?
There’s a Ford Maverick!
I can’t even begin to tell you how many tubes of lip balm have made it through my wash cycle. For some unknown reason, lip balm seems to enjoy the trip through the washer and dryer, because it seems to hide in pockets and lay in wait for the unsuspecting clothes. Not good, not good at all.
Fortunately, I have found a method of removing those greasy spots left by lip balm. I use Goo Gone. It has never been known to fail to remove those spots. Just follow the manufacturer’s directions.
Don’t use it on delicate clothing- if you have some delicate clothing that needs to be de-chapsticked, use Dawn dishwashing liquid, but that doesn’t work quite as easily as the Goo Gone. Goo Gone is truly a miracle with lip balm disasters!
