A while back one of my children fell asleep playing with NEON ORANGE silly putty. Obviously I didn’t know they were playing with it in BED! The next morning the poor child sheepishly told me they had a mess. Boy was it a mess. That silly putty was on everything. Flannel sheets. A favorite stuffed animal. Blankets. Did I mention it was NEON ORANGE??
Google quickly gave me thousands of possible sites with answers to “silly putty on sheets” but I was afraid I wouldn’t have the supplies needed. These are the times where being stuck at home all day is not to my advantage. Fortunately rubbing alcohol seemed to be a recurring solution. I HAD THAT! In a minty scent. Leftover from a craft project.
I learned that day that with plenty of time and patience, rubbing alcohol would dissolve silly putty. I got out virtually all the silly putty, although a little of the orange coloring remained. Really, what could I expect? NEON ORANGE!
Happily I’m here to tell you that where silly putty is concerned, rubbing alcohol works for me!
