Alcohol to the Rescue!

HA! Being that I don't drink this will probably the only time you'll hear me say such a phrase! Of course I'm only being silly!!! But seriously what I experienced yesterday was no laughing matter. I had a bottle of Fray Check explode all over my sewing table and  several drops got on a project I was working on. I nearly panicked!!! I quickly wiped up the residual with the quickest piece of muslin I could find and said a prayer under my breathe. I felt so sick ya'll. Those of you who have used fray check know that it's nothing you want to be spilling on your clothes. I kept my calm, investigated the bottle and read that rubbing alcohol could be used to get rid of unwanted spots. Well I administered the alcohol and remedied the problem. Thank God! That was a close one (wiping sweat off my brow). I don't ever think I'll squeeze a bottle of fray check to dislodge a clog again. Lesson learned-------FOREVER!!!! So if you ever find yourself in a similar situation. Don't panic----just grab the rubbing alcohol!

Ok, enough about my near nightmare! Back to some client sewing. The newborn's satin dress turned out too cute. Can't wait to post!


  1. Been there and done that, omg! That's a great tip, I must remember that one. I'm glad that worked out for you.

  2. Thanks for the great tip and I'm glad your accident wasn't disastrous!

  3. Glad you were able to save your project and thanks for the tip. To keep my fray check nozzle from clogging, I keep a straight pin in it... the pins with the decorative heads.

  4. Very good info! I would not have been so clear-thinking, I'm sure.

  5. That's some great FYI!! Now I know that if I have a spill on a suit while I'm out...locate the alcohol. Good stuff!

  6. EEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!! I'll have to keep that in mind lol


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and for following me on my 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge:)
