    Help! Remove quilt marks

    I used a pink clover marker to draw quilting lines on a wall quilt...marked lines supposed to be removable with water. They didn't come out! Since I have gold trim on this wall hanging, I had it dry cleaned instead of washing it. I still have some pink lines...now I need suggestions. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder if the dry cleaning process caused the markings to be permanent. Can you call the cleaners and ask their advise? Also I would try to contact Clover and ask them. I don't really have any experience with Clover markers--are they chalk?
    Good luck getting it out.

    Good luck. I used the orange one once, and had a heck of a time. I tried erasing it, and rubbing it off with water. I'll never use them again.

    Best to always test to make sure before quilting. Maybe the drycleaning is why you can't get the marks out...but I hope that you are able to.,

    You don't say what you have tried to remove the marks. I'm not surprised dry cleaning didn't, since it is in fact "dry". I would first try spot removing with a damp cloth or a spray bottle, to see if a little water will indeed remove the marks. Unfortunately, if that doesn't work I have no ideas - maybe contact the manufacturer for help.

    I had that happen to me once with a blue marker. I tried as hard as I could and the marks just kept coming back. Good luck.

    What about the Oxiclean in a spray bottle? Or the Tide pens for stains like on your clothes when at work. They work really good on everything. Even tea and ketchup. Good luck. Let us know if it comes out and what worked. Good Luck.
