Acryllic Yarn

I'm making a blanket, which is an adventure to keep clean. I guess I don't mind picking cat hair out of it, but since I started, I got something brown on the yarn. It smells like chocolate. I have NO idea how I got chocolate on my work.

The yarn is white acryllic. How do I get it out? Can I spot clean it?

Maybe Oxyclean?

If you haven't crocheted the 'brown' yarn yet, just cut it out and join the ends. If you've already crocheted the 'brown' then I would wait until the blanket is finished and soak it overnight.

I always just wash my acrylic blankets in the machine on gentle. Never hurt one yet!

Wipe the spot with a babywipe or a washcloth with a little soap on it and see if it comes off. If it does, great! If not, leave it alone and when you're finished, wash the whole blanket as prep for damp blocking it into it's final shape!

The label should tell you if you can wash it in a machine or not, but if that's not something you want to do, you could try dish soap with warm water on the yarn that's affected. Don't use too much, and don't scrub too hard, or it might stain. :) Good luck!

I got hot sauce (Tobasco) on a white sweater (cotton) I was knitting a few months ago. Even THAT came out with spot cleaning, then the pre-block wash too. I would try spot cleaning and if that doesn't work, then finish and wash the whole thing (using whatever directions the yarn gives). Good luck! It's so disappointing to see something "ruining" your work, so I hope it comes out!
