    burn it off, always works

    I got some out of OH's jeans by using washing up liquid and a nail brush and hot water, scrub hard into the weave, then pop in the washing machine, hope this helps. It worked for me. Good luck.

    It has been on for about a week and they have been washed twice, it has faded but you can still see it.

    Will have to give them a good scrub !!

    Thanks all.

    I'm sorry, but you'll probably find that as you've washed them already it now won't come out as the hot water will have set it. Your best option (which is a little late now) would've been to pre-treat them as someone mentioned above, or with vanish, and then put them in the washing machine, at least you'll know for next time.
