Stylist Kit – Stain removers – Shout it out

Of course it’s easier to get rid of a stain when you’re home and you can wash the garment, but what do you do on a shoot, if there is lipstick or deodorant on a garment? Sometimes you’ll receive a garment that is already stained or something happens on the shoot. As you already know I’m a fan of the Tide pen and usually have one in my kit. Tide to Go is great for removing fresh food and drink stains. The other product that I like is Shout Wipes, I use this for dust, dirt and sometimes make-up – but it really depends on the fabric. If the stain is really prominent you can ask the photographer or art director if it can be retouched – it usually can but always remember the clothes are the stylist’s responsibility!
