I've heard of "lipstick on your collar" but not mascara on your shirt! lol

Have you tried using a pre-treater like "Shout"?

Another tip would be to use a cloth to dab eye-makeup remover on the shirt to remove the stain, then wash as normal.

Remember not to put the shirt in the dryer until you are certain the stain is gone.

It's not so bad really. I never thought I'd drink diet soda, but after getting diagnosed with diabetes I switched, and now I don't even care that it's diet.

I've been laying off soda recently, and sadly enough beer for the same reason.  Need to loose weight.  Had a Pepsi Max the other night. Bitter.  Worse than vermouth.

LOL anything with the word Diet or claims 0 calories is disgusting.

I had to lay off the soda because I am worried I was becoming diabetic.
