How do I remove correction fluid stains from clothes?


Question: How do I remove correction fluid stains from clothes?
Here's how to remove correction fluid stains from clothes:

Wet a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol, again testing the fabric for colorfastness. Dab the alcohol on both sides of the stain (front and back) and allow it to penetrate. The fluid should begin to break down and release small white flecks. Rinse the area well. Place a white paper towel under the fabric and using a cotton swab, dab the stain with acetone-based nail polish remover. Keep dabbing until stain is removed. Treat with a prewash stain remover and launder according to fabric label directions.

If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
