Decoupage fans know that Mod Podge glues fabric to nearly any surface, so it can be difficult to remove once it dries. No matter how careful you are when working with Mod Podge, it’s easy to drop a bit on your clothing and not realize it. Once Mod Podge dries on fabric, you might think you’ll never get it out, but obtaining the stain damp again could make the difference between ruined and reusable.
Scrape away as much of the dried Mod Podge as possible using a butter knife.
Scoop a finger full of petroleum jelly from the jar and then apply it to the dried Mod Podge.
Work the petroleum jelly into the fabric with your fingertips and let it sit for a minumum of one hour.
Wipe off as much oil jelly as possible. Saturate the spot with grease-cutting dishwashing fluid.
Dampen the fabric marginally and work the dishwashing liquid in by massaging the fabric together. Allow it to sit for at least 15 minutes.
Rinse the dishwashing fluid under cool running water. If any petroleum jelly or Mod Podge remain, reapply the dishwashing liquid.
Wash the fabric in the washing machine with warm water and laundry detergent.
Hang the material to air dry or put it in the dryer on low heat. Don’t dry material until the Mod Podge and petroleum jelly are completely gone, as heat may set the stain.
