I posted my 'Gloom' on Flickr and got a tip about Oxy Clean from Anne @ Play Crafts. Plus, I got a link to this blog: Material Culture that discusses this very issue. After reading, researching and and a trip to the grocery store I was ready to tackle it.
After my first attempt: Oxy Clean Gel Stain Remover, Oxy Clean Detergent and a Color Catcher - This is the results:
So much better, but still not gone or good enough for me. Last night I started again. I put gobs of stain remover on and let is sit for 15-20 minutes. I filled a bucket with hot water along with one Oxy Clean packet, color catcher and threw in the pillow cover. I let it sit over night.
This morning I washed and dried it and Viola! I am pleased as punch! I do believe this gift has been saved!
Can you see it?
And here they are...the Three Wise Men!
