I used a chalk marker by Hoechstmass to mark free motion quilting designs on my last quilt. Now I can't get them out. I have tried to wipe them off, washed the quilt 3 times (the last time after pretreating with OxiClean), and it is now air drying. What else can I try? Alcohol had no effect. Neither did spraying water directly or using a brush on the marks. I have never had any problems removing the chalk marks before this. They haven't been ironed. I don't know what is different except I marked this quilt more. Please help!
Wow, I use a chalk line and it just wipes off, sorry, I don't know any hints for you.
I have used one of those micro cloths and rubbed gently on the markings. It has worked well so far. I even tried wetting the cloth and rubbing. So far it has worked well. But now that your quilt has been machine washed I am thinking that this may not work for you. If you have a spare piece of the original fabric, try making a few marks on that piece and you can experiment with different methods of cleaning first without damaging the quilt itself.

Grandma's Secret Spot Remover works wonders but I would contact the chalk company first.
