    I need to get a lot of the sparkle off the MM Fairy Frost. It looks like they lost the bottle top on this one. I have washed four times. Ideas please.

    Try wadded up tulle netting. (Like a scrubby) Hit it just where it needs it and be gentle.

    You are most welcome. You might also want to try warming the fabric up with a hairdryer and then try the tape since the glitter is kept on with adhesive that may let more be removed with the warmth.
    I hope your not trying to do this on 6 yards of fabric. :shock:
    Good luck :lol:

    Hi, hope you can get that off. I use Fairy Frost alot but have never ran across that problem. Let us all know how it goes. Did your brother in law like the wool quilt?

    Thanks,

    I used all ideas. They all helped. I am happy with the fabric now.
    I have not been able to do much sewing. I had surgery on my ear last week and so far I can not wear my glasses. Dr. said maybe in a week.
