And the *In* shade for Spring is...

L'oreal # 840 ~ Nature's Blush

Need I say more?

A forewarning to all those I know who are about to have their first child... Don't turn your back. Ever. Not for two seconds. Not even to go to the bathroom. Consider yourself warned.

You poor, poor thing. I'd feel bad for you, but I'm laughing too hard. (Smile!)

Here's something I got off the net on removing from the couch. Let me know if you need the steam cleaner, I'll bring it over. Good luck!!!!

Lipstick is a dye in an oily base and can best be treated with a solvent based remover or prewash stain remover as a first step. Water based or wet spotters will only spread and set the stain. Don't rub the stain - it may only drive it in deeper. Blot the stain with your clean white cloth, and rinse with warm water. If the stain is stubborn, try applying a good liquid household detergent to the stain, again blotting the stain and not rubbing the material. Often, rubbing alcohol will remove lipstick stains. Dab the stain with a small amount of alcohol, then add a small amount of household detergent, and then rinse and blot with the dry white rags. Ammonia is another good resource for removing lipstick. First blot the stain with a bit of water to remove as much of the lipstick as possible, then treat with a little ammonia. Do not use ammonia on silk or wool! Some authorities claim that hairspray works well on removing lipstick stains. Spray a little hairspray on the stain, let stand a few minutes, and then wipe off the hairspray with your white cloth. Rinse and blot.
If the stain is large, dry or on a high valued item, you may want to have a professional remove the stain, this is probably the best choice.
