Kid’s love to imagine and being creative, and costumes make their imaginations believable.
Try soaking them is lukewarm water for thirty minutes to remove the oils in the fabric then rinse. Soak it again in warm water with a teaspoon of dish soap and white vinegar. Rinse it thoroughly and repeat the procedure until the stain is gone before proceeding to launder it.

Sometimes makes-ups can get into clothes while they try to remove it. Only use make-up products that that are washable. Soak the stained cloth is warm water with detergent in 30 minutes before scrubbing the stain then rinse.
Don’t forget to treat the costumes with fabric conditioner right after the launder to give them a fresh and clean smell.
Your kids will be happy knowing that the costumes they soiled were as good as new as the first time they wore them.
