Hi all

I had an annoying flat on my mtb front wheel the other day and before it sealed up it had sprayed quiet a bit on my cycling jacket and shorts. Foolishly I thought it would be washed away during the regular washing program, but no. So now I have a black jacket and bibs with white/orangey dots all over. I have tried peeling it off, but it seems well imbedded into the fabric so I'd probably destroy it if I rubbed/scratched really hard on the fabric :noidea:

Can anyone recommend a way of removal that will not ruin the clothes?

The sealant is Orange Seals if it makes any difference.

Nor have I. Everything I wear for the shop has sealant stains on it. Wear an apron.

Now I feel even more sorry for the guy I saw trying to come to a stop after a fast descent with sealant blowing out of his tire like one of those spinning fireworks. He had some very nice kit on.

One of those magic erasers worked for my shoes... It came out of my socks in the wash.

I sold the bike to get it off my bike ..kidding but I did sell the bike.
