Poor DD#2 got a really nice personalised pencil case on the weekend for her birthday and her twin sister just got liquid paper all over it
How can I try getting it off without ruining the hot pink colour of the pencil case?

once it's dry you might be able to peel it off. I used to write all over my pencil cases with liquid paper, then scratch/peel it off

Try putting it in the freezer. The liquid paper will go brittle and you can bend the pencil case and it should crack and peel. This works best if the liquid paper is on thick.

It's not on thick. DD#2 tried to clean it off and it looks like it has soaked into it.

Has anyone else got any other ideas?
It's like it has soaked into the material. It wont scrape off. I wondering if I should try a clothes stain remover or something? Either a spray or I have Exit Soap and a scrubbing brush. Not sure if that would ruin the colours though.
If I can't get it off I'm going to have to order her a new one since it's not her fault. I still can't believe DD#3 did it.

Mum got it off curtains once with mail
Polish remover not sure if it all came out but worth a try

Thanks Hayley, I just tried it and it has faded it a tiny bit but its still on it.

I would say methylated spirits but patch test it first

I got it off with liquid paper thinner once - that was a metal pencil case though

You could try googling Shannon Lush and see if she has any suggestions?
She's on the radio once a week when I'm in the car collecting the kids, and there's 2 stain removal hints I can only remember
1) Be careful what you do as you might set the stain and make it harder to remove
2) The type of fabric, carpet etc will also determine how to remove stains.
Or there is this

Thanks guys. I tried the WD40 & windex etc as I had it but it didn't work. I will get some turps when I can and give that a try.

I used to get it off my school uniform with 'liquid paper thinner'.

Can you buy another pencil case? It might work out cheaper than using all the cleaning products.
