How do you remove silly putty from clothes?

Asked by MyNewtBoobs (19054points) July 24th, 2010

I got silly putty on my cotton jammie pants yesterday. I’ve already tried freezing it, but it’s still just as flexible.

@lucillelucillelucille I put the pants in the freezer, but it’s still flexible and hard to scrape off, it’s just cold now.

Try denatured rubbing alcohol.

If all else fails, cut the blob out and sew a nice, little heart-shaped patch over the hole.

@gailcalled You’re brilliant!

@Pied_Pfeffer, No, just a former quilt maker. You can patch or appliqué on most fabrics, but cotton is easy. If you are creative enough, you can make the repair look deliberate and special.

Goo Gone or Goof Off both work well

If you try the 99% (denatured) isopropyl alcohol, be very careful. It is highly flammable.

@UScitizen Yeah, but… I’m not having open flames while doing it. At least 50% of my bathroom products are highly flammable.
