I used the WD40 as recommended on this site and yes it worked I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed but eventually out it came from a school dress, school wincheater and from a pair of bras. It soaked through the lot but thanks to everyone out it came.
Many, many thanks for the advice

It is possible to buy Liquid Paper Remover, you should be able to purchase it in any stationery store or office supplies store. I've tried many methods that have been suggested to me but the only thing that worked was the actual Remover solution

I went into the Wite out web site and they have a whole page of info on how to remove.

If you need more info, I'd just call them and ask.

Try WD-40 make sure you spray on both sides of the stain.

White Out Removal 12/16/2005
1. Sponge with Acetone (unless fabric contains acetate)

2. Tamp with a spoon

3. Flush with rubbing alcohol

Correction Fluid, White Out - Always read and follow the care instructions on the garment label. And, follow these General Rules for stain removal.

This is a real tough one, and may be permanent. It can penetrate into the fabric and when it dries coats the fibers in a harden "plaster." Unless there are instructions on the product label, you can try specific stain removal products available at the grocery or drug store, such as Carbona's Stain Devils or take the stain to your dry cleaner and tell them to treat it as a paint stain.

I know when I need to thin white out and I do not have the thinner, I have used paint thinner or mineral spirits and shake as instructed on the thinner bottle it works fine. On clothes I am not sure of. It might work but do it with caution and wash.

1. Sponge with acetone (unless fabric contains acetate.) 2. Tamp with brush or spoon. 3. Flush with alcohol.

If it is a non acetate material, treat it with acetone. Cheap nail polish remover has acetone so you could use that. Tamp it with a brush to try to break it up the best you can, then flush with rubbing alcohol. If it is acetate, you might do best to take them to a dry cleaner or use dry cleaning fluid.

Goof Off, Goo Gone, paint thinner and alcohol all are recommended.

I just spilled the white out on my desk at work and it ran down into my lap and onto the floor. I went to and found out what would work... Goo-Gone! I used it and it did work! Thanks, you come through again.

Goof off will remove goof ups with white out. I used it on black jeans and it didn't even remove the color! And of course, they were my favorite designer ones! Good luck!!!

If you ever get White-Out (also called "Liquid Paper") or permanent marker on clothing; dab on a small amount of sunscreen over the stain and rub off with a paper towel. Repeat until stain is gone and then wash normally.
