Silly Putty Stain

Does anyone know how to get Silly

Putty out of material? My child had Silly Putty on my sofa throw and the throw was sat on. I


have picked off what I can pick off, but its still there.

Thank you.

My kids have gotten Silly Putty stuck to various things in the past. You could try putting a

little ice on it and try "chipping it away". This has worked for us before on clothes. Then I

was able to wash them. Good luck. (06/05/2005)

Call the 800 number on the package. I had SP Putty on my carpet and I called them. They told

me exactly what to do to remove it and it worked. You could not tell where it has been when I

finished. (06/07/2005)

Check out the manufacturer's website for details on how to remove Silly Putty stains from all

kinds of stuff: (06/07/2005)

Try Woolite Oxy Deep. I just discovered Silly Putty on my new sofa (who knows when it got


there) and wasn't too keen on putting wd-40 on it so I tried this first. It actually came out.

I was able to rub the fabric together, but if you aren't I would just try using your fingers

or maybe a toothbrush. If it doesnt all come up in one session retry later on. It took me

about 1/2 hr to get it out. Not too bad considering it was the whole egg of putty.

I had the triple whammy. Silly Putty in my daughter's hair and the pillowcase and her down

comforter (she fell asleep with it in her hand). For the hair, Pam worked well. Spray it on

and work it out with your fingers or a comb.

For the pillowcase, I tried the freezing and WD-40 and that worked OK, the putty didn't

really chip off, parts of it did, but the thinner portions stayed on. Also, it starts to thaw


and get gummy again pretty quickly. The rest dissolved fairly well with WD-40.

For the down comforter, I had to think of something different, as I didn't want to spray it

with WD-40 and I couldn't fit it in the freezer. This is going to sound crazy, but I used more

Silly Putty. I was standing there trying to decide what on earth to do, when I took the little

ball of SP that was left over and started quickly dabbing at the comforter. It worked. The

ball of putty pulled off what was on the comforter. Warning: dab in quick thrusts so the

additional putty doesn't end up stuck as well (although even when this happened, I was able to

pull the bulk off and get all of it off). (09/03/2006)

OK, so someone got Silly Putty on our couch, and there was no way that we were going to put

WD-40 on it and the ice wasn't working. So we got out a dull knife and chipped away at the

excess silly putty. Then, we took this carpet cleaner that we got at Sam's called Spot Shot

Professional Instant Carpet Stain Remover, and it worked perfectly. (12/02/2006)

I just discovered that nail polish remover works really well. I got some on polyester "fleece"

pajama pants and that's what I had handy and decided to try.
Good luck to anyone trying to remove this stuff.

(The only reason I have it is for strengthening my muscles after recovering from tendonitis. I

do not recommend this product for anything, but therapeutic purposes.) (12/12/2006)

Just rub salt in it and it comes right off like magic. (12/31/2006)

I had some Silly Putty totally ingrained on my carpet. Some raspberry Smirnoff did the trick

nicely. (05/17/2007)

Silly Putty Stain Remote Control

My daughter put green Silly Putty on the remote control. I gave up trying to clean it off. In

about a week it dried up into a fine powder and I was able to just gently dust it off with a

cloth. (06/30/2007)

Ice cubes don't work very well, but we used Oxi-clean laundry stain remover and it worked

really well. (08/23/2007)

I used hand sanitizer which is technically alcohol and it worked also to remove Silly Putty

off my sweatshirt. Thanks. (11/13/2007)

I tried the rubbing alcohol and I also tried ice, they both left green marks. I tried Zout

Oxy, a laundry stain remover, and the Silly Putty disappeared right away. (02/07/2008)

Don't use rubbing alcohol on denim. It fades the fabric. (02/10/2008)

Rubbing alcohol leaves a stain. (08/08/2008)

You can use WD-40 and then let it sit for about 10 min. Then scrape with a knife lightly.

My sister got silly putty on her blanket. We washed it with bleach in really hot water and it

came off. (12/23/2008)
