Blue Line Eraser was one of the items I picked up at the Houston Quilt Show. It says it erases marks made by blue fabric markers and they won’t come back. Well, you all know me…I have to play.
So today I gave it a test run. I was very impressed but see the results for yourself…..
I drew blue lines using two markers I had on hand and the one that came with the Blue Line Eraser kit on unwashed Kona cotton.
I ironed the top group with a hot iron and left the bottom group alone (just because I could be abusive).
The top line in each group was erased by dabbing with water and the bottom line in each group was erased using the Blue Line Eraser Pen.
Note: It took more water than Blue Line Eraser product to remove the lines. Especially in the ironed area.
Now for the real test…I pressed the entire piece of fabric again (just to be abusive)
Gah!! See that!! The blue lines came back in the water erased rows. Nothing came back on the rows erased with the Blue Line Eraser product.
Next I tried stitching through some batting. This time I used running water to erase the top line and patted it dry with a towel. The bottom line was erased using the Blue Line Eraser spray bottle.
Note: I have to say I like the control of the Blue Line Eraser Pen better than the spray bottle.
Again I pressed the wet fabric using a hot iron (just to be abusive). This is what I got…blue lines returning in the water erased area again!! And they’ve drifted from their original location!!
Note: It took three rinse cycles until the water erased marker no longer came back.
I ♥ this stuff! I won’t be afraid to mark on my quilts any more.
As with all products be sure to test it on your fabrics before using it on your quilt.
