The Quilt

First of all, when you plan to use hairspray as a stain remover, you might NOT want to take it into your bedroom and spray it right before getting into bed for the night.  With two open windows, a fan, and an open door, I still felt like I was breathing hairspray fumes all night.

Second, hairspray does not always remove ink.  Sigh…

I have no alcohol on hand.  So I think I might take Shannon’s advice and take it to the dry cleaner’s.  Unfortunately, I might have set it in worse by washing it several times.  Gads. 

I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Oh, hairspray smell in my room would drive me nuts!! But that’s totally something I would have done, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry I have nothing to bring to the table for stains. I usually just wear my clothes despite the stains! Haha!

  7. Sorry the hairspray didn’t work. Did you use cold water? Hot water only sets stains in, let us know if the dry cleaners can remove it.

  8. I have major OCD when it comes to stains. I hate the thought of an outfit getting ruined. I just can’t throw clothes into the garbage for some reason. I think I’ve tried every stain remover on the market.

    For ink, you need to use a solvent such as alcohol or an acetone-based finger nail polish remover. That’s where the hairspray recommendation comes from (though depending on the type of hairspray there may not be much solvent in it)

    The Tide pens come in a close second for some ink stains. If that fails, sometimes Zout works. Also there is a new product by Shout (Shout Advanced) that is supposed to remove set in stains. You spray it on and leave it for a long time (I think it says you can even leave it in days). Sometimes it helps to add a little Borax to the gel once you spray it on.

    My absolute favorite stain remover of all times is Didi-Seven. Its particularly good at getting out ink. It isn’t available in stores anymore but there is a website in Canada that sells it at a reasonable price. If Didi-Seven can’t take out a stain, I give up. The only reason it wouldn’t be my first suggestion is the pink in your quilt. It sometimes takes color out of pinks and tans.

    Good luck!
