Thank you guys! White Out does come out with WD40, just as you said. I'm going to our holiday office party tonight and don't have a big white spot on my black skirt anymore. (However, I do smell like machine oil.)

I just spilled white-out on my cream colour skirt, like half a bottle and it soaked in instantly. Rinsing it out didn't work and I truly thought it was ruined as it looked like a paint splatter. I then tried stain remover and nothing happened. I was going to toss it into the garbage then decided to try the wd40 because I thought this would make the skirt worse but I was wrong, it worked 100% and it took a few hours and a few attempts with the wd40.


I allowed it to sit, then rub it together and re-applied until it completely disappeared . Tossed it into the washer and there is no sign of the white-out or WD 40. Very impressive so thanks for sharing this tip!

Whiteout does NOT come out. I have used it for years to mark names on the inside of dark sweatshirts that kids wear to school.

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

Here is a link to their product page:


It is an all purpose lubricant, used to spray on squeaky hinges, etc.
