Have washed on 60 cycle and there is still a bit left (there was A LOT angry)

Shall I bother giving it another wash at a higher temp, or is this as good as it will get?

I'd give it a quick rub with a vanish soap bar and wash again

I've yet to find the stain taht bar can't tackle

Ah lovely!

She has designed her own bespoke duvet cover. Celebrate it, don;t be angry.

It was only bought LAST WEEK for the princely sum of £30 <faints at memory>

The only cotbed duvet cover I could find ANYWHERE

Alas, I have been unable to be all free-spirited and arty about it wink

Will go with the Vanish and re-wash tip, cheers MamaG smile

Who gave her felt tips in her cot? Sounds like the sort of thing a big brother might be behind grin

Try to be more freespirited!

You spent £30 to keep her warm no? And the felt-tip doesn't stop her from being warm at night does it?

Surely you are not more concerned with what things look like than with whether or not they perform their function?

Even guests aren't likely to see her cotbed are they? So don't be too stressed if the vanish doesn't work! smile

Put vanish/napisan on it and leave it in direct sunlight.

She is 3.2

In a bed, not a cot

And spectacularly failed at pointing the finger of blame at DD1... who happened to be at a friend's house for tea!

She has been made to sleep on bare floorboards and a nappy/vest combo as punishment

Maybe she is just really creative and wanted to customise... I know it was naughty, but once reprimanded why don't you get her some white pillow cases and some of those fabric glue-glitter-pen and let her make some! or even white t shirts....

When she's the next Stella McCartney remember that I deserve a discount.

This stuff is amazing. I used it to get lily pollen out of a pale green carpet once - it is brilliant.
