Hi! I'm Lizzy!!  and I'm not Martha!!!


* A couple of months ago I had my car stolen.  The people 
who took it thought they were real artists and drew on the 
cover of the air bag on my steering wheel with a thick felt 
tip black pen.  Can you please tell me how to get it out.

Thank God I got it back without any other damage!!!)

I sent an email to the felt tip pen company but they haven't 
given me the courtesy of an answer.

Thanks for your help.

I am so happy


STAIN REMOVAL FOR FELT TIP PEN INK

Washables and Nonwashables:

Place a pad of clean paper towel or disposable muslin on 
the spot.

Drip a small amount of dry cleaning fluid through the spot 
from the back of the fabric, allowing it to soak the pad.

Take another pad and dampen with dry cleaning fluid, then 
gently blot the stain, repeating when the fluid evaporates.

If stain remains, repeat this process except use a 
combination of 1 part mineral oil & 8 parts dry cleaning 
fluid. Finish by flushing with dry cleaning fluid alone.



P.S. If you're interested we now have a forum. You can post

But sometimes tragedy happens to more delicate fibers.  Here 
are two reliable methods for getting the ink out.  

WASHABLES METHOD 1

Mix 1 quart warm water, 1/2 tsp liquid detergent and 1 tbsp 
ammonia, then soak the stain with this for 30 minutes and 
wash as usual.

If stain remains, mix 1 quart warm water with 1 tbsp 
vinegar and soak for 30 minutes, then rinse.

If stain remains, allow to air dry and blot with alcohol. 
Cover the area with a clean paper towel or disposable 
muslin that has been dampened with alcohol for 30 minutes, 
changing the pad with a fresh one as it absorbs the stain. 
Keep the spot and pad moist with alcohol. Wash as usual.

If stain remains, bleaches are an option if applied with 
caution (lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide, oxygen bleach like 
Clorox II, and chlorine bleach, in order of strength and 
harshness).

WASHABLES METHOD 2

Mix 1 quart water, 1 tsp liquid detergent and 1 tbsp white 
vinegar, then soak in this solution for 30 minutes, then 
wash as usual and allow to air dry.

If stain remains, blot with alcohol. Cover the area with 
a clean paper towel or disposable muslin that has been 
dampened with alcohol for 30 minutes, changing the pad with 
a fresh one as it absorbs the stain. Keep the spot and pad 
moist with alcohol. Flush with water.

If stain remains, mix 1 quart water, 1 tsp liquid detergent 
and 1 tbsp ammonia and let soak 30 minutes. Rinse and allow 
to air dry.

If stain remains, white fabrics may be treated with a dye 
remover purchased in the dyes section of a supermarket. 
Bleaches are an option if applied with caution (lemon 
juice, hydrogen peroxide, oxygen bleach like Clorox II, 
and chlorine bleach, in order of strength and harshness).

*I have a bet going with my mother.  She says you can get 
electrocuted if you shower during a lightening storm.  I 
say piffle...old wives' tale.  What do you say?


I say pay your mom!  

In the real world, the odds of being harmed this way are 
extremely minute. But it is not unheard of. The National 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration who tracks lightning 
injuries, estimates that 10 to 20 people in the United 
States are shocked annually while bathing, using faucets 
or handling appliances during storms.

In a storm, a protected building acts somewhat like a metal 
cage. Electricity from a lightning strike is conducted 
around you and eventually dissipates into the ground. There 
is no real risk unless you touch something connected to 
plumbing, electrical wiring or another conducting path.

The Lightning Injury Research Program at the University of 
Illinois at Chicago, said people had been shocked and even 
killed washing dishes, doing laundry and sitting in bath-
tubs in storms. A database of these incidents is online at 
struckbylightning.org.

Interesting, huh?
