How do I remove Fray Block™ from my fabric?
 
To remove an unwanted spot of Fray Block™ begin with rubbing alcohol. Be sure to test the rubbing alcohol in an inconspicuous place on your fabric first. Watch for any color change or formation of a ring. The alcohol evaporates quickly and usually doesn’t stain. Dab a cotton swab in the rubbing alcohol and rub it on the drip to dissolve the Fray Block™, working while the spot is still wet if possible. If the drip has dried, continue to blot and rub the spot until it is removed. Because most sealants are a nylon/plastic in an alcohol base, alcohol is the only solvent that will chemically break down the plastic. It is important to give the alcohol time to work on the drip.

If your Fray Block™ has been opened and unused for some time, it is possible that it has begun to thicken inside the tube. We recommend testing it on several different color scrap fabrics before using on your project to see if this has occurred. If you notice any color in your Fray Block™ (white or cloudiness), this may have begun to happen. It may be helpful to run the tube under hot tap water for 3 minutes; shake for 30 seconds. This will help to thin the Fray Block™. We then recommend retesting the Fray Block™ on your scrap fabrics once again to ensure the Fray Block™ is once again clear.
