Please help. I used a blue Clover Chaco Liner to mark my top stitching line on an expensive wool and I can't remove it. I tried a masking tape lint roller, brushing with a dry cloth and brushing with a damp cloth. Am I SOL or do you think the dry cleaners can get it out? I wonder if I could suck it out with my vacum cleaner? I'm desperate!

Thanks

Personally I'd be wary of dry cleaners because detergents and chemicals set these markers. I use these marker a lot but never on a garment I don't plan to wash.

I understand your frustration as I've had markers ruin my garments in the past too when they wouldn't come out. I wanted to scream I was so mad.

My only advice would be to mark a scrap piece of fabric in the same manner and use that as your test when trying to determine how to get rid of the marks. Better to test on a scrap than testing on your garment. Sorry I can't offer any better advice.

There is a product called chaco-keshi (chaco-remover), which you can see in this link, though I don't know what name it is marketed under in English. There's a spray type too.

Did you iron the fabric after marking it?

Try taking a layer of the masking tape and pressing it directly onto the fabric where the line is. Make it adhere to the fabric all over and then pull it off. Not just roll around on it.
