PostSubject: sewers aid   Tue Apr 21, 2015 7:25 am

I have noticed that sewers aide seems to have bled into the background fabric on a project of mine, I noticed it when Id pressed the darn piece. Does anyone have any thought or ideas on how to remove it, what to wash it with? Im afraid the heat of the iron may have set it, does anyone have any advice to offer? Thanks

Hmmm supposedly it is stain free. Guess that's not right is it? I tried looking it up and OMG! be carful with Googling that! Apparently silicon lubricants have a whole different use Shocked

Anyway, I read anything from denatured alcohol, a citrus based cleaner, plain soap and water, to a product called goo-gone. Mostly I read that it probably won't come out. So sorry Helen.

If you can get a dish washing soap that has a degreaser agent in it, that should help get any residue out. I use sewers aid (which is basically Mineral oil) on some of my threads that I Long arm with and have never had any issues with it bleeding or staining any quilts.

My bottle of sewer's aid says it's silicone. A lot of people mentioned Dawn dish washing liquid. It's worth a try.

I dont have to imagine, I googled it too and yup, all manner of things came up Shocked lmao lmao

I knew it was silicone thats why I was hesitant to just wash it, think I will try some dish liquid and see how that goes, I dont want to shift the dye on the applique pieces so think that will be safe.
