|Here's the blanket |
after I first made it.
I picked up my 2 month old daughter from daycare to find that the blanket I had made her had several small ink spots and one large dollar coin sized ink spot. It turned out that while making Valentine’s one of the kids had dropped a marker on her blanket and no one realized for a while. The marker stains were all over the satin edge binding on her blanket and I wasn’t sure I could get it out. We have all learned that just because a marker is for children does not mean it is washable.
|Before - Large Ink Stain |
I put a few drops on the smallest spot to see if it was effective and with a little scrubbing and some rinsing the marker stain was gone. I then decided to tackle the big ink stain on the fabric. This was a little more challenging because the ink was heavily saturated, but again with a lot of dabbing with paper towels, scrubbing, and rinsing I got it all out.
|After - No more ink stains!|
The picture shows the blanket while it was still wet from rinsing; it hadn’t gone through the wash yet. I was impressed by the results and thrilled that her blanket wasn’t ruined. I never realized that removing ink stains from fabric could be so easy. As a new parent, I’m sure that this will not be my last run in with ink stains. However, now that I have Lift Off 3 in my stain remover arsenal, I’m confident that I can remove stains from fabric and other surfaces.
