    OK, do the Crayola washable crayons and the markers just soak out?? in cold water. I have my quilt soaking now. I did test and the marks came out but the quilt border is taking awhile. just want to be sure.......

    I do bridalalterations and have used baby wipes to get the markers out. I used to use them for marking my hems and such.

    Well, they certainly are hard to wash out of the kids' clothes!! LOL

    I use baby wipes for lots of stains. Gets makeup and lipstick off fabric very well.

    I just washed mine in the washing machine, no problem. Don't dry it though, if there is any left it will set the markers.

    Try a wet Mr. Clean Magic Eraser...it works great for pencil marks.

    A few drops of alcohol in the top end of the marker will give you enough blue to finish the marking. Just remove the white tip and drop a few drops in, replace the top and away you go. Should have give me a call. :thumbup:

    Why arn't you using the Frixion? I have used, froze and ironed with mine and have had none of it reappear.

    ha, if i'd used the Frixion I'd probably be trying to get black out. the border was yellow fabric so I didn't need that dark of a marker. still haven't tried those pens.

    well i got out 95% of the green crayola marker lines. yellow shows it still a bit but not much. I'll see how it looks tomorrow when it's dry.
    after soaking, i applied WD40 and liquid dishwasher soap, rubbed that in and washed with Oxy clean again. then next time around i sprayed the marks with Shout Advanced and washed with Oxy clean again.
    looking so much better. tomorrow is another day.

    I used a purple, broad-tip Crayola washable marker, wet it with baby wipes, rubbed it very well with a Shout stick and let it soak in the washer for a while. Came right out.

    OOOOOOOH scary! I taught preschool for too long to believe the WASHABLE designation on stuff, especially washable tempera paint! I'll just keep using the more expensive ones that are made for quilting.....

    Yellow in any kind of marking can be a problem. I have used the yellow chalk and it was so hard to remove, that I vowed never to use it again.
