you have to wash it pretty quickly or you can get a stain ring. Tide
pen gets nearly everything out and does not seem to leave a stain ring...
I've become a very big fan of Spot Shot, which I've found to be
phenomenal at removing makeup stains, even in extreme situations (like
taking eyeliner pencil out of dupioni silk). It's not foolproof...but
it does a pretty impressive job. Make sure, if you're using it, that
you've got CLEAN white rags to blot with...I have given myself mild
coronary gyrations by transferring residue from an old stain onto a
garment I was trying to clean...
