Best Tips to Remove Glitter from your Clothing, House, and Yourself

  • Oil for the win! Use basic oils to remove glitter from your hair. Basic oils include cleansing oils, baby oil, olive oil, coconut oil, etc. Take the best basic oil you have on hand and coat your fingers with it, then massage the glittery parts of your hair and let it set for 10 minutes. After that, you will find the oil has loosened the glitter from your hair and it will be ready to easily rinse in the shower.
  • Parents advice! Who can be better at removing glitter from clothing than a parent? Their kids love the shiny stuff but they also make a mess out of their clothes. In case you did not know, most parents normally spray glitter-covered clothing with aerosol hairspray and let it dry before washing it by itself (never with other items because the glitter will reappear there!).
  • Another way to remove glitter from your hair is to blot your scalp with a paper towel sprayed with hairspray, the glitter will adhere to the hairspray and it will be easy to remove since the hairspray will not get stuck in your hair.
  • If you want to remove glitter from your skin, you can also use oil on a cotton pad to wipe down your face or other glittery areas of your body. But do it lightly and be careful to cover all the possible areas where glitter is present. After that, you can wash your skin with warm water and soap.
  • In case you are wondering how to get rid of stray glitter bits from your skin if the cotton pad did not cover all the areas, then you should try wrapping scotch tape around your index finger (with the sticky side facing out) to get those tiny bits out of you. Remember to always replace the tape in your finger if it gets covered with glitter or loses its stickiness.
  • In order to remove glitter from your home, you can sweep it into a large pile using a wet paper towel or dryer sheets if there are only tiny bits of glitter on your floor. If the amount of glitter to be removed is already in a pile, you can use a vacuum hose to suck it from your floor.
