    I am just heart broken of having the ink from the printed paper pieced pattern bleeding through, when I sprinkled water on the mug rug and ironed it. How do I get this out? Do I have to make a new one? I left a the paper in the middle square to get it more stabilized before I embroidered.
    I can't give this as a gift to the couple who we are invited to for their 50 TH wedding anniversary.
    I used the tide stick but did not do a thing. Can anybody help me, please.

    I think someone here previously used rubbing alcohol successfully to remove ink! I hope someone else chimes in, though!

    Are you talking about the spot on the gold fabric in the lower left corner? Because I don't see anything else.

    If you can't get the mark out, just make a new block (square in a square) and swap it out for the marked one. You don't have to redo the entire thing.

    Try hair spray check it out on a piece of fabric first, it may take the color out as well.

    This is the link to a discussion about removing ink and solutions! I think rubbing alcohol won.

    Try some Awesome all purpose cleaner, most dollar stores carry it. Spray and let it sit for an hour, keep it damp. Rub it lightly with your finger nail and the stain should disappear. You can wash it then once the project is finished :D
    The problem is the iron may have set the ink... It will come out... it is just finding the right cleaner/product :D:D:D

    When all else fails try lighter fluid on a q-tip.
