    I have not tried this myself, so don't know for sure it works, but it was in the latest Quilter's Newsletter and I haven't seen this tip before. It said to use vinegar to remove blue or purple heatset marks.

    If it works, it might save a few quilts.

    Do you use white vinegar or apple cider?

    White - I'd be afraid apple cider might leave a yellow stain on a light colored fabric.

    I think what they mean by a heatset marker is a disappearing marker that has been accidentally made permament by ironing. If you iron marks before spritzing with cold water marks will go away but come back when dry. I've had it happen to me so I'm tickled to here this solution.

    Fit Vegetable Wash will take out the marks completely too. It's like liquid magic eraser! And it's non toxic and completely safe. I love this stuff.

    I tried vinegar on crayola washable markers and it didn't take it out. Needless to say it didn't wash out with water either.
