Hello To One And All!
Ever just have one of those days where you really know you shouldn't push it, but you think, "oh what the heck?" and go ahead and do it anyway? Well, I did. After a day where everything has been crazy, I decided to Yudu a shirt and don't ya know I've got bleed through on a screen that did not bleed the last time I used it. Everything is taped off and should have been fine, but I lifted the screen and I have white/silver ink on a dark teal shirt. Unsure

Does anyone have any idea how to get the ink out of the fabric? Other than these three little spots, the shirt looks great. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks!
Rachel

Try Bar soap. But the Yudu ink doesn't tend to wash out even if you don't heat set it. You can try. A little bar soap, fingernail scrape, rinse. This works for my Speedball and Jacquard inks but I've never done it with Yudu inks.

I have actually found that Shout stain remover is just great, I keep a bottle with my Yudu work and a couple small brushes (tooth,makeup) and when I have that happen I just spray the brush with the shout and rub let sit a few and re do if needed Hope this helps

immediately rinse with cold water. I've messed up plenty a shirt and rinsed and ran through the washer immediately after and you couldn't tell at all.

I recently did a shirt and when I pulled it off the planten, I set it dowm right on the squeedge. I hurried and used a damp cloth to get out what I could. Then I heat set what I wanted to stay on and then washed the shirt. It came out beautifully. It was the lime color and there was a lot on my shirt.

Ah, I do the same thing. I set my shirt in wet paint. You'd think I'd learn, but no.Blushing

Thank you all for the responses. I DID manage to get the ink (a combination of white and silver) out completely. Since the faux pas was so close to the design, I decided to use a very special screen printing standy-by tool: Q-tips! Using sd Q-Tips, I saturated the area with the rogue ink and rubbed quite vigorously with the Q-Tips and occasionally scratched the surface to loosen any of the ink that had begun to dry. I then used an anti-bacterial foam hand soap and applied it to the troublesome area and let it air dry over night. VOILA - catastrophe diverted! BigGrin
