How to get melted rubber band stains out of clothes?
Somebody posted a useful way to stop clothes from slipping off hangers by rolling rubber bands over the ends of the clothes hangers. I live in Rio De Janeiro Brazil and I did this with my silk short sleeved blouses that are always slipping off the hangers.
WOW! WHAT a mistake! The Rubber Band self destroys and melts into all my beautiful pure silk T-shirts and nice blouses with melted rubber that has permeated the fabric and ruined quite a few of them.
I still kept some where the fabric is more resistant thinking that some-one might know of some solvent to get this gunk off and out of my T-shirts. I used paint remover and it destroyed the silk. The most destructive "Üseful Hint" that I've ever tried out!
