How to remove Color Wonder Markers, Fingerpaint, or Soft Sticks from washable curtains

Machine wash with laundry detergent in hot water. Place soiled material into washing machine, making sure the detergent is completely dissolved. Air dry. Repeat if necessary. You may use OxiClean detergent for extra cleaning power according to the directions on the container.

SPECIAL NOTE Optional: You may do a presoak using both laundry detergent and OxiClean detergent, no longer than 30 minutes. If left in presoak too long, drapery color may be removed. If the washable curtain is white, chlorine beach may be used according to the directions on the container. If drape/curtain is not washable: blot off as much stain as possible and consult a professional dry cleaner.
