View Full Version : Thread stains....

ok, so has anyone had this probelm before?
i had to use black thread to sew clasps onto my beatrix costume cause black blended into the clasps, then i realized i had them in the REALLY wrong place and had to take them off to move them...
and i saw in horror there were little blackish grey spots where the black thread had gone through the white fabric...
is there any trick i can use to get these spots out? they are driving me crazy! and helped to throw my motivation to finish the costume out the window.
i just have to get rid of them, i tried soap and water and it did nothing. i cant bleach it because the red velvet lining is in and i cant risk getting it near it.
i dont want to have to try to put small spots of white paint on my nice fabric, but if thats what i end up having to do so be it...

any help with this crud would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
help save my sanity. O.o

Rit dye remover. That's the only thing I can possibly suggest. or Rit white wash.
