The Solution that was a Solution for the Accident that was an Accident!

Eureka! I have some unbelievably good news. The silly putty (click link to view previous post) was able to come out! I was seriously thinking about throwing the blanket away, when Kane (and Google) suggested I give germ gel a try. Well, it seemed believable because it had alcohol in it. However, the only thing that was unbelievable was the fact that I didn’t have any germ gel around my house! (Lately, germ gel has been getting a bad rap for the fact that it kills both the good and the bad germs. So, we have been trying to do more of the good-old-fashioned hand washing.) My sweet niece gave me some of her germ gel, and I began my experiment (somebody really ought to try this for a science-fair project).

As I put hand sanitizer on there, the stain seemed to melt like putty (wait…it is putty). I rubbed it with a damp rag to speed up the process. The stain had come out. Amazing. I was happy to find a solution (the germ gel) that actually was a solution (our answer) for the accident (putty-in-a blanket) that actually was an accident (Silly Putty was made by accident). (Sorry about that last sentence…I couldn’t resist!)  I never realized how powerful germ gel was. I am sure there is a place for germ gel, I am just not sure if that place is on my hands. This situation reminded me of the time we saw a can of soda eat away the corrosion on a battery, and it made me wonder why I drink sodas! Well, I still occasionally drink sodas and use germ gel, but I’m not exactly sure why. I told my friend (the one I gave the silly putty to) about the germ gel remedy, and she suggested that if I give any silly putty out, I make sure to have a small germ gel container with it!

As amazing as this stain remover was, the most amazing and powerful “stain remover” of all time is the blood of Jesus Christ.

(Here is a picture of the very same silly spot. I put the safety pin on there so I would know where the stain originally was.)

    Yeah!! I’m happy to know you found a solution. I guess they didn’t have germ gel when my little brother fell asleep sucking his thumb and cuddling his silly putty 37 years ago. When he woke up with a blob of it in his hair and all over his sheets, my Mom was NOT happy!

    Thank you for offering the help. Yes, I don’t think germ gel was available until the late nineties, but I never knew it could remove stains. They should advertise that!
