I’ll never forget the night that my husband, Brian discovered Silly Putty on the Wii drums. Those drums aren’t cheap and Megan had been told, more than once, about getting her Silly Putty on things. I’m not sure why she thought it would be a good idea to put it on the soft, foam-rubber-type pads of the Wii drums, but I was very proud of Brian’s self-control.
While he counted to ten (or maybe it was one hundred), I got on the Internet. You can seriously find anything on the Internet. Rubbing alcohol, it appeared, would do the trick.
It did. I put a little rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth and easily wiped the Silly Putty away.
It wasn’t too long after the Wii drum incident that Megan informed me that – oops! – she’d left Silly Putty sitting on the floor in my room. The carpeted floor. And, the dog had lain down in it.
Fortunately scissors get a little stuck Silly Putty out of a dog’s hair and alcohol, it turns out, gets it out of carpet, too.
The Silly Putty is in a landfill somewhere now, but should you ever need to know how to get Silly Putty out of fabrics – or off of Wii drums – this tip definitely works for me.
