Using alcohol does not remove the white out stain. Believe me i've tried it.

rubbing alcohol doesn't work on clothing...
however, if you got it on your skin, rubbing alcohol can get it out after some minor rubbing.

I tried isopropyl alcohol on my 7 year olds $60 horseback riding britches and, unfortunately, it did not work. On the bright side, it didn't seem to harm the fabric and now they still have a large wite-out mark on the thigh. That just goes to show that you should never spend that much money on a pair of pants for a 7 year old. Thanks for the tip....no harm done.

I found that the rubbing alcohol removed about half the white-out stain from my wool pants, and I'm counting on dry-cleaning to do the rest.

I tried isopropryl alcohol on clothing and a carpet to remove White Out corection fluid. I It had absolutely no affect on it. It's easier to remove pain than this product.

I had a major white out spill on a pair of denim pants and I tried everything and the only thing that worked was Goo Gone, I set rubbed it in both sides of the stain and let it dry, then pretreated with laundry detergent and washed. This was a month after the stain had set, I was amazed. You can get bottles of this stuff at most Dollar Trees.

I know you asked this long ago but for anyone that still needs to know. . . WD-40 sprayed & let soak a little onto the spot soiled/stained with white out works wonders. I had gotten a new bed comforter for Christmas and my 4 year old spilled the bottle on it hours before I found it. I tried oxyclean, alochol and detergent nothing worked. Days later someone told me WD-40 works and boy did it.
