You may also be able to find tip-ex remover or "thinner" but I'm not sure which shops will sell it.

Eau Ecarlate 'Spotless' (multi-purpose dry clean stain remover)

just dab it on and the tip-ex disappears.

scrape off as much as you can with a knife, then use white spirit (test on an unconspicuous area first).
if you don't have white spirit use tippex thinners, or try nail varnish remover. White spirit is probably best and very cheap (about £2 a bottle in places like Wickes/B&Q etc)

The quicker you do it, the better the result.

You could try emailing Monica Lewinsky, I read somewhere she now knows how to remove white stains from clothing....

Hehe, the Yahoo Answers results are usually pretty darn good.

I subscribe to the white spirit brigade,reckon that will work :thumbsup:

Just had to alter word white as came up as ***** - must have hit the 's' button instead of the 'w'!!!!
