I need your help!

Ok, so I have been making this quilt for the past like, 2 freakin' months, and I bought this spray glue for basting, it says right on the can that it's for all kinds of stuff including lightweight cottons to fleece and all that stuff, so I used it, and it stained my fabric!
I have washed it twice, soaked it overnight in oxy-clean, and I don't know what else to do!
It's for a christmas present, so I'm screwed already, but if I figure out how to get the stains out, then maybe we can wash it afterwards (it's for my mother) please please please help me!

I've attatched some pics of the stain spots.

It doesn't even give any clean-up instructions on the can either! The only thing it says is to clean the nozzle with mineral spirits...what the heck is that? Can I use it on my fabric too?

Ya, it's not actually greasy, I tried some kitchen products (I know, bad idea) but it's really just like dried glue. It is solvent based, so any solvents should work. I'm trying alcohol right now, but maybe nail polish remover or acetone (ack!). I'm just worried about ruining the fabric too!

Well, you haven't got alot of choice, has it dried stiff?, you may have no choice but to get unpicking to salvage the top.......it looks as if you may have used too much, as it looks in blobs...difficult to tell, what a crying shame :cry:

What a shame! Do tell us what type of adhesive it was. I'd like to avoid that product. I think rubber cement thinner (Bestine) would do the trick. Try it on a scrap first. Good luck!

What's the brand name of the spray you used? Is it petroleum based? Sometimes aerosol propellants drip from the nozzle and that looks like what may have happened to you. Maybe we can find a cure if you tell us the brand name?

Mineral spirits is the same ingredient in paint thinner. If you pre-washed the fabrics, I bet you can use it on them without running the dyes. Can you create the stain on some scrap to experiment?

Who manufactured the stuff, and do they have a number to call? Timing being what it is, you may not get a response til after Xmas.


If it has a poison warning on, you may be able to track down a safe solvent that way.
