how to remove foundation stain from (dUCk)scarves

This, is one problem I think us girls have been dealing with since puberty.

(or whenever we started wearing tudung hehe)

I'm not usually heavy on the makeup application, but I make sure I wear at least some face powder and concealer and lipbalm for my sanity. Once in a while, I wear foundation - but only in the morning until I take I take it off for wudhu' because I don't bother to re-apply it again during the day. Face powder and/or concealer would do it, for me.

But..my (dUCk)scarves still gots the stain sobs.

Yikes.

So the other day, I recalled reading somewhere that adding powder to cleaning makeup related stain would do the trick. Not exactly sure how, but I decided to try it anyway. Most of my scarves seriously need this kind of treatment due to the amount of foundation stain on them T.T

So. This was how I did it (cincai je at first) :

+ Rub some liquid soap (in my case, I was too lazy I just used body liquid wash) on top of the affected area
+ Pour body powder (in my case, I used Rayyan's baby powder as it's just laying around the room) on top of the same area
+ Soak in warm water, leave for a while
+ Hang to dry

Checked the scarf (in this case, I was cleaning my georgette and satin silk dUCkscarves) to see if there's any improvement - THERE IS! The stain was pretty much 90% gone, and my scarves looked like new.

Not sure how the combination works, but I guess soap and powder did the trick.

Try it! And let me know if it works on yours :)
