Around Christmastime I made some Dress-A-Dolls for a friend. A few days before I was finished and ready to deliver them BigMan got ahold of two of them with an ink pen.
I almost threw up. Really. Physically, felt my stomach turn.
I called my husband at work desperate. He called me right back with a google search solution for ink stains. Hairspray. Amazingly I still had a can up in the cabinet (why on earth? and from how long ago? because you know, I don’t have a secret “dress like the 80′s” night or anything).
The secret is, lay a paper towel or handtowel (anything absorbent) under the stained item, then saturate it with hairspray (this takes a lot of bravery, but hey, it’s already ruined what do you have to lose?), then dab it with another towel. Do this repeatedly, being sure to use a clean part of the towels. It will come clean. Smells alot like 1992, but hey. When it’s all out you can wash the item and it’s good as new. Amazing.
I somehow didn’t get an after picture. I know, what was I thinking? You’ll just have to trust me this time.
