If not it will make some awesome pinstripe fabric lol

My husband asked me today if I could work on it but he did it over a month ago :evil:
I tried Oxyclean and I still see it

Thanks, and glad the board is back up!

The only way I have ever been able to get out ink (and that does not count permanent ink) is with aerosol hair spray. Then wash it in laundry detergent and a bottle Coke (must be name brand Coke - don't know why).

Spray it with hair spray, rinse repeat till it is gone.

Try Grandma's Secret Spot Remover.

Found at JoAnn's and Hancock's Fabric, not sure about other stores.

Sometimes the hairspray works for me too. I've had to soak shirts in Oxyclean for a couple of days before I got (most) of the ink out. Good luck.

I agree hair spray is the best, it works on crayon, and to get stuff off a vinal roof the cheaper the better because it is the laquar in the hair spray that takes it out, now if you have greese use dish washing detergent and will take a lot of other things just put it on the greese and wash can let it set in laundry basket untill wash day.

Or try glycerin.Comes in a small bottle like food flavorings, vanilla. Can be found in pharmacy area near bandaids and peroxide. Read this years ago but have never tried it.
