With the exception of silk or wool, the lipstick stain should be treated with a couple of drops of ammonia. The stain should be alternately blotted and flushed with water, a wet spotter and small amount of white vinegar. Then, the area of the stain should be flushed with water again.

Washable fabric should be treated with a stain remover, presoaked and washed right away.
