    I have seen GOOP sold at Walmart ..Look in the automotive section where they sell their hand cleaners.
    I do grid my fabric with pencil. and always wash my pieces after i stitch to get the hand oills off.. even though i do wash my hands before i start stitching.
    The hand oils r there as well as dust that settles on ur stuff every day.
    I wash my pieces with good ol Dawn dish soap. after all it is made to get grease off of dishes and pots and pans.

    When they have enviromental disasters and the animals get coated with the oil sludges. They use dawn dish soap to wash the animals until they get all the oils off.
    I barely add a few drops to my wet pieces and only after i have completley get my pieces wet and wash only in cold water.

    You didn't mention if the pencil marks were on ur fabric where u r going to stitch over or is it on the fabric that is going to be seen and not matted on. or did your threads that u already stitched get the pencil marks.
    All mine have always come out when i washed my pieces. then i turn it over and use a dry iron to iron my wet pieces. just be careful to not iron real heavy on the fabric that isn't stitched.
    When i did that it stretched my fabrics.
    After i wash and iron my pieces i then finish beading and using the specialty threads that would melt if i put hot iron onto them.
    Good Luck

    Thank you for these tips. The place she marked is already stitched. I was hoping to have this finished soon but will see...
