Does Minoxidil Stain Clothes? (Expert Answers)

⌚️ Got only 60 seconds?
Minoxidil can stain clothing, hats, or bed linen if your hair or scalp is not fully dry after using the medicine. Avoid transferring the medicine while wet to other parts of the body. This can occur if the medicine gets on your pillowcase or bed linens or if your hands are not washed after applying minoxidil.
