Rubber Cement Removal from Clothing

To remove rubber cement, you can use mineral spirits, laquer thinner, or a product called Goo Gone - or similar products such as Goof Off. Any of the above should remove the rubber cement for you without harming the fabric or the dye of your clothing.

I have been working on a project that ended up being a nightmare. The instructions were not too detailed so I had to walk through putting it together a few times and inprovise on the pattern, folding on each line exactly and cutting the outside guide line off. Instead of using regular white glue, I used my old friend rubber cement so I could pull it apart and glued photos with it as well. I got so wound up in what I was doing, I did not realize I had rubber cement on my slacks in several places. Thanks for the tip, I sure can use it.

Is the same true for car upholstery? A can of rubber cement was left in the back of my car and exploded onto the seat.
