Oh no, accidentally made out with my T-shirt again!!!

Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.

It happens to the best of us: You hastily make a last-minute outfit change before you head out the door — when your makeup is fully intact — and wind up with lipstick somehow smeared on your white shirt. Ugh. But next time that happens, you'll know just what to do: Bust out a can of hairspray. Yep, plain ol' hairspray. 

In a YouTube video posted by Kalei Lagunero, the vlogger documents the process of removing a red lipstick stain from a white T-shirt using primarily hairspray. (She uses a fancy one from Oribe I'd probably reserve for my actual hair, but who am I to judge?) And it works! The whole process is as simple as it is magical.

To see exactly how Lagunero manages to make the lipstick stain vanish, watch the full video below:
