With both waterproof and non-waterproof mascaras, a faint mark may remain if the mascara is not removed immediately. Generally, mascara is a dark colour and so the stains are quite visible, the longer you wait to treat the stain, the harder it will be to remove.
Remove any excess mascara very carefully with a blunt knife or similar implement.
Put a small amount of cold water onto a cloth and gently dab the stain.
When at home, put the item into a wash with 60ml of Vanish Oxi Action Gel.
Mascara causes such bad stains because of its oily nature and dark colour. Oily substances tend to soak into fabrics very quickly and can cause really difficult stains.
Mascara is a staple item in handbags and on dressing tables up and down the country; whilst it looks great on your eyelashes, mascara is less impressive when smudged all over your favourite clothes! A mascara stain is one of the most challenging stains to remove due to its dark and oily nature, but thanks to Vanish Oxi Action, it shouldn't be a problem.
