What about peroxide? Just a thought! No I told you so's!!! This is a learning experience and the world is not going to come to an end and you will use the quilt and it will keep you just as warm, right? Edie

Whoa! So glad this worked out for you.

This is definitely a good thread to save, as it has so much information regarding getting stains out and the frixon pens. I had never heard of Frixon pens and so glad I have never used them, but really glad to learn about them.

This QB is the greatest.

I have had such good luck using Amway Prewash
and then immediately wash in your washer, adding All Fabric Bleach (http://www.amway.com/BestLife/Shop/P...?itemno=117774)
to your regular laundry detergent.

And no, I am not an Amway distributor and have nothing to gain by recommending these products.

I've gotten out red lipstick on my new leather seats in my car, coffee spilled on my new white carpet, red wine spilled on a new Tommy Bahama silk shirt (only used spray wash and sent off to the cleaners), and countless other success stories by using these products alone, or in combination of both.

I wish you luck, and let us know if you find something that works. We can all learn something new.

Whoops....see that you already solved the problem! Good for you.

Latest update: Now that we know Oxyclean will work (it is a peroxide based product), the worry is: what is the correct concentration? The Oxy crystals say use 1 scoop per gal of water. the scoop looks like 1/8 cup. The directions say start with a high concentration and keep lowering it until you get a concentration that works to keep the concentration at a minimum (I guess to avoid a chemical burn like Leah had on her duchess quilt). So, not knowing what is too high, I bought another product. OxyClean MaxForce gel stick. Whatever it is, this will be my top concentration.....I hope it works. If not, I will call the company and ask what concentration Max Force is, and how higher can I go without a chemical burn. So the Saga continues. Fun note: My Hubby says, "you bought another cleaning product? This is costing more than the quilt!" ......oh if he only knew ha......I just said, "This is the price of education" and on I go. Promise to keep the QB updated.....Because now that there is hope, and less panic, it is now just a learning process...and I can deal with that.

With hindsight being so clear - what advice do you have for other quilters re marking their quilts?

I've used "AWESOME". you can get it at DOLLAR GENERAL, it works on paint, grease, ink, and yes, blue "washable" ink pens. I just poured a little on and rubbed it in before washing my quilt.
