How do I remove lipstick from my sofa?
The technique I recommend for removing lipstick from a garment will only work on your sofa as long as the lipstick stain is on a cushion cover that can be removed. It is also necessary that the fabric be machine washable; hopefully there is some information available under the cushion that tells you how to properly care for the sofa. If that’s the case, then start by testing all the products you want to use for colorfastness to the sofa fabric. Usually a product has instructions for this, but if not, then apply undiluted product to a hidden part of the sofa (that you can easily rinse) and wait 10 minutes before rinsing and checking for a color change. Once you know which products you can safely use, here’s what you can do.
