    I marked the quilting lines on a table topper with yellow chalk and it didn't come out when I washed it. Any suggestions???

    Thanks,
    Joy :(

    I was reading on this topic. It said you need to be careful what kind of chalk you use. Not all chalk is created equal and can be used on quilts. You may want to use a soft tootbrush and water and see if it comes out. Are you may need to use Oxy soap. Good luck hope it works. Look on chalk package and maybe contact manufacturer.

    Did you notice before it went in the dryer? Heat can set some marks.


    I have some flat yellow tailors chalk that I am scared to use because it seems waxy.

    It is from a marking chalk kit that I bought from Fons and Porter.
    I might try a soft tooth brush with a mix of water and spray n wash.

    i've read in a few places that yellow is the hardest to get rid of. in a place that doesn't get seen, i would try hairspray. what color is the fabric?

    Try a foam paintbrush. It works for me.
