Putting on a fake mustache is an easy enough task, but it does require a bit of technique. Read our guidelines for applying a fake mustache.
1. Clean area of skin where you will be applying the fake mustache.
2. Take spirit gum and spread a fair amount above the lip.
3. Use your finger to tap the spirit gum lightly until it has a tacky consistency.
4. Apply the fake mustache.
Note: Removing the fake mustache will be easier if you apply Ponds cold cream to remove the spirit gum. Remember to test the spirit gum on another part of your body before putting on the fake mustache to make sure you don't develop an allergic reaction.
