Learn how to put together an easy DIY Mr. Clean costume for a bald man with a white t-shirt, a gold clip-on earring, and a fake white mustache.

As I was thinking of a costume for a bald man that I could make for my husband, Mr. Clean came to mind. It is such a classic bald man costume, and it was so much fun to create this simple Halloween costume!

The truth is that my husband is basically Mr. Clean. He cleans more than me, and he cleans better than me. He is also got a bald head and bright blue eyes.

What really makes the costume is the gold earring and the white eyebrows. Those details really make the costume recognizable.

My husband has dark eyebrows so having white eyebrows is such a contrast! Our kids just loved seeing their dad with white eyebrows and an earring!

Choose which white mustache closely resembles your eyebrows. Think of one as half so that you can sort of visualize what it will look like. Separate the chosen mustache from the others.

cut out fake mustache you like

Cut the mustache in half down the center. Remove any faux hair that got pulled or cut off.

To assemble the costume put the stick on mustache pieces on the eyebrows. Put on the gold clip-on earring. Wear a white t-shirt and optionally wear white pants. You can also carry a magic eraser for an extra special touch!
