Okay, this may not be the most exciting post, but as a mom, it makes me pretty giddy.
About a week ago we took our kids to a Fall Festival at the nature center. We had a blast, but a few of the craft projects involved coloring with permanent marker. My oldest two are 4 and 2 - the perfect age for making a mess with markers. Sure enough, they came home with permament marker stains on their brand new fleeces.
I was certain they were destined for the "play clothes" pile. First though, I checked around online. I went to the Sharpie website and listed amongst their FAQ was "How do I remove Sharpie from clothing?" They recommended a product called Amodex Ink and Stain remover. After visiting the Amodex site (which seems to be down right now or I would link it), I found out it was sold at Hobby Lobby (reason #53460 I love that store). I figured it was worth a try.
I followed the directions on the package and applied a bit of Amodex directly to the dry stain and scrubbed (just slightly) with my nail. IT DISAPPEARED! The stain completely vanished BEFORE I even put it in the wash!! I can't tell you how happy it made me.
The bottle said it is good for a lot of other stubborn stains so I'm going to give it a try on some clothes that have been in the scrap pile for awhile and see what happens.
