Stain removal from blanks

If a drop of correction fluid gets on your clothes, do not rub the stain as it will further penetrate the fibers of the garment.

What you should do:

  • If the blank has dried, which is very likely if the stain was created at school, try to remove as much as you can with a knife or credit card.
  • Pour some rubbing alcohol or white vinegar on a clean cloth and dab the stain. Gently rub the stain from the outside to the inside.
  • Press the clean cloth against the stain so that the vinegar or alcohol penetrates the fibers of the garment and breaks down the blank.
  • Then rinse the stain thoroughly with plenty of cold water.
  • Use a clean toothbrush to brush away any remaining correction fluid.
  • Wash the garment in the dishwasher at the temperature indicated on the label.
