As we all know.. makeup is designed not to budge from your face, and it takes the same approach to fabric! Therefore, after using your pads to remove eye makeup there will inevitably be some staining. Like a pillowcase, regardless of how much you wash them, they will never return to the pristine condition you bought them in - and that's okay. There are however some ways that you can minimise the stains. When your pad is still damp having just washed off your makeup, rub it into your soap bar and run under the tap - this will get out the vast majority of the makeup before it's allowed to dry.
