How do you get rid of silly putty from garment?

Does anyone know? My DD did it. I tried to scrape it off, but it's not working as well as I thought. Should I soak in water?

  • Put an ice cube on top of it and let it melt. The ice will harden the putty and you should be able to peel it right off. This works with gum and other sticky substances too.

  • I just stick the clothing in the freezer for a couple hours then peel it off.

  • Pop the whole thing in the freezer for a few hours. It should ship right off then.

  • Ice or goo gone. If it's already ruined you wouldn't have to worry about ruining it trying to get it out..
