Help! Alternate cleaning methods?
« on: April 18, 2019, 05:03:05 PM »
I moved recently, and one of my suitcases was for misc stuff- mostly cables for my computer. Without thinking about it, I tossed my two favorite girls on top and now both have mysterious black stains. :shocked:

I've already tried soap and water, a regular school eraser, 70% alcohol, and magic eraser. Is there anything else I could try? Not sure if sunfading would work as neither are white.

I suppose this is a PSA to always ziplock your ladies before traveling!

sunfading isn't just for white ponies... and i think they should be safe, i've never heard otherwise (i could be wrong). if you do decide to sunfade them, be sure to cover the unaffected spots thoroughly and keep an eye on them, though.

I might as well give it a try then, thank you. :)

Acetone! Get some nail polish remover on those girls stat before the stain sets in!!
Do take extreme care around the painted areas, though.

I would try mineral oil before acetone and sun fading - leave it on liberally for a bit and then rub it with cotton wool, see if it dissolves the stain.

I'll see if I can find some and do acetone if there's still no effect. Thanks everyone :)

Baby oil is mineral oil so you could try that. Good luck with it.
