How do you clean wet tissues off clothes that got missed when put in the wash?
By Pat from PA
I usually don't see it until it's dried, and then it peels right off.
I usually pick off what I can by hand and then throw in the dryer.
I buy a roll of contact-type paper, found at stores like Dollar General. It's great for removing lint, and it can be cut in sheets, rather than using rolls of tape. You might also try vacuuming the clothing with the (dried) tissue pieces. Good luck with that. Oh, although I don't use a dryer, I have found that putting a wet "linty" item in the dryer for a few minutes will leave it with much of the lint removed.
I buy Puffs instead of Kleenex as they come out of my Maytag washer and dryer in one piece when I miss one in a pocket. I have never been able to find Puffs in a small pack so still have to buy Kleenex in pocket packs.
Put those items in the dryer, and most of the tissue will end up on your dryer's lint screen. The rest you can remove by hand.

How do you remove Kleenex that was washed in with colored clothes? Now it is all over them.
