Valentine’s Day calls for roses, romance and red lips.

But should your date-night makeup end up on your white shirt (or someone else’s), you’ll want to go straight to this cleaning hack. There’s no excuse to spend the most romantic day of the year doing laundry!

All you need is a white towel, a bottle of blue dish soap, and a spray bottle of water.

First, blot the stain to remove any excess makeup. Then spritz the fabric with water without soaking it completely. Put a drop of dish soap on the offending lip print and gently rub it in with your finger. Let it sit for ten to fifteen minutes. Finally, dab the spot with a dry towel.

Your stain will likely still be just visible, but laundering the shirt as you normally would should finish the job.

Sporting a bright lip year round? Just keep these common items on hand and smooch without fear.
