ACK! Help! I wanted to get the visible pencil marks off my fabric after finishing (mostly) the embroidery I've been working on for the Good Cause Challenge and a bright magenta floss (a vintage skein I picked up at the thrift store, probably Coats & Clark) bled onto the white cotton fabric!
It's really upset me as I've put hours into this and was pretty pleased with the results - AND I don't want to do it again and certainly won't have time even if I did.
I've never, ever had floss bleed regardless of brand or color, but I also haven't stitched that much. I do have a small collection of vintage pillowcases that I launder in cold water with all my other whites and have never had a problem, even though I bleach a smidge every time I wash my whites.
Anyway, my first instinct is to use one of those laundry detergent pens I've seen advertised. Anyone have any suggestions or advice?
