Hack 2: Bring on the baby power
If you feel like you have tried everything to remove that pesky stain from your favourite hijab, don’t give up just yet! Try adding some baby powder over the affected area and allow the powder to absorb the oils for 30 minutes. Once the time is up, gently wash away the powder. Just like magic, your hijab is brand new!
Hack 3: Don’t sweat it!
It’s a beautiful summer day, the sun is scorching you’re trying to enjoy the outdoors, but all you can think about is trying not to get your hijab sweaty. Ditch the stress, sis. Grab some baking powder and dish soap (a little goes a long way) and follow these steps! Mix the two ingredients to create a thick paste, rub the mixture over the affected area with the tool of your choice (toothbrushes work great). To finish it all off, add a little more baking soda over the covered stains to give it that extra kick, and set your timer for 10 minutes. Ding ding ding, time to wash and reveal your crisp and clean hijab!
Hack 4: Micellar water or magic?
Micellar water is truly like magic in a bottle for removing makeup, and it works just as effectively to get those foundation stains out of your hijab. Maybe you thought it would be easier to put your hijab on before doing your makeup, but now you’re left with foundation splatter on your fave hijab (don’t worry, we are not judging). Try soaking the area with micellar water and letting it do its magic. Then, rinse and repeat if necessary–just don’t rub!
Hack 5: Pass the spoolie, please!
It sounds strange, we know. Trust the process! Grab your spot cleaning ingredients of choice in one hand and your trusty spoolie in the other. Now, it is time to (gently) go to work. Lay your hijab flat over a towel and apply your favourite cleaning solution. Carefully brush the product out of the fabric with your spoolie by rubbing the spoolie over the stain back and forth and up and down. You should see the stain lift and transfer from the hijab to your towel. Toss the towel in the washing machine, and gently hand wash the affected area of your hijab.
Drying tip: Always air dry your hijabs instead of tossing them in the dryer to preserve their shape, minimize wrinkling, and protect delicate fabrics!
