DD has come back from school with black and blue felt tip pen marks all over her white shirt. What do you ladies find works? and more importantly can I buy it in a Co-op or Somerfield? grin

there is a Stain devil specially for felt tips and biros - would probably be able to get it in a larger supermarket

Peg them out after stain removing and washing in the sunshine...you remember sunshine..that big hot yellow thing hanging in the sky?

Psychomum5 grin Oh I wish I could, but its part of a Victorian costume she needs again for friday.

Mrsmaidamess I think I do, havent seen it since late last week! grin

ReneRusso Thanks, I'll take a look for it tomorrow!

Apparently Biro ink is soluble in milk, not sure about felt pen ink - might be worth a try. You can definitely buy it in Co-op / Somerfields grin

Hairspray sprayed through the material from behind the stain is supposed to work.

Cat64 - Can I ask a silly question? What do you soak it in? just water or add something to it?
