One of my OH"s shirts seems to have a blob of melted plastic stuck to a fairly sizeable area (a noticeable one, too, for this reason can"t really reduced it turn off or owt favor that). I have actually no idea how it got there. The shirt came out of the washing machine, dried and also as I collection out come iron it, ns noticed this thing - whatever it is. I know it wasn"t resulted in by ironing together I hadn"t even started come iron it at the point! It has actually melted into the fabric, so except the actual chunk that plastic, the fabric about it feeling stiff and like it had glue end it.

 

What the hell deserve to you do to gain the plastic off? Is the shirt ruined (hope not as it"s a brand-new and a an extremely nice one!) Is there any type of chemical friend can obtain to soak the off.

Just ~ above the off possibility anyone has actually enusmam.orguntered this problem.

 

One of my OH"s shirts seems to have actually a blob that melted plastic stuck to a reasonably sizeable area (a noticeable one, too, so can"t really reduced it turn off or owt favor that). I have no idea exactly how it obtained there. The shirt come out of the washing machine, dried and as I collection out to iron it, i noticed this point - everything it is. I understand it wasn"t brought about by ironing as I hadn"t also started to iron that at the point! It has melted right into the fabric, so apart from the actual chunk of plastic, the fabric approximately it feel stiff and also like it had glue end it.

 

What the hell deserve to you perform to get the plastic off? Is the shirt ruined (hope not as it"s a brand-new and a very nice one!) Is there any chemical you can get to soak the off.

 

Help please!! strange enough, this is no a usmam.orgmmon problem on old Google therefore some real (and British, without assets only easily accessible in the states lol) input would certainly be appreciated.


 

If the is plastic, you will certainly have problems shifting it. The truth that the shirt is usmam.orgtton could just offer you a chance.

 

You usmam.orguld try freezing the shirt and then chipping the plastic off through a spicy knife. This functions for gum, it can work because that plastic.

 

If you obtain desperate, shot a little bit of meths, that can soften it enough to change it.

 

Other than that M+S perform lovely shirts:)

Personally i"d be much less worried about the shirts and more about potential crack addiction. No saying he"s a crack addict, but crackheads do melt plastic bottles to do crack pipes...worth questioning the question just how it gained on your is all i"m saying. Most likely nothing.

If that won"t chip turn off usmam.orgld, I"d place a item of usmam.orgtton cloth over it and also carefully stole it, checking it consistently until it"s soft enough to pick/scrape off

 

I"ve no idea that your opportunities of obtaining it ago to 100% though

That"s the many far-fetched usmam.orgmment i usmam.orguld imagine:o

 

I think we deserve to safely neglect this theory in his case:P

 

I recognize that this is a valid reason for having melted plastic on clothes, however I virtually spat mine tea out there:hihi:
