    That doesn't sound good! You can try washing it by hand in cold soapy water. The pencil will probably come out. I doubt if you will get the highlighter out unless it is water-based. If that doesn't work, try using some Shout or spray and wash. You may just have to scrap it. Go to top

    Have you try the tide stick? I hear on another board that it worked well......

    Good Luck!

    I agree with the other reader, the pencil mark may come out with soap and water but with the highlighter, depending I suppose on how deep the highlighter color is and what color your cloth is, try just lightly putting baby powder on it and try not to ground it in too much. I had a stain on one of my projects one time and was in tears. My grandmother recommended this old trick and it worked!

    Good luck! Go to top
