:cry:

Anyone have any tips on how to get the stuff out of a cotton shirt?

My wife said to soak it in hot water...That doesn't seem to have worked.

What kind of wood glue? The waterproof kinds are pretty permanent, almost nothing will remove them that won't also remove the shirt. I have several stains from various waterproof wood glues on several pairs of pants and several shirts, too. Some are many years old - I don't expect they will ever leave or be removable.

Lesson learned. Wear old shirts.

I have a couple of 'Titebond' decorated shirts! They are now either shop shirts or rags. That stuff is pretty much there to stay - sorry. Small, superficial patches can sometimes be 'picked' off.

The water thing was right, but the temperature was wrong... not just hot water... either boil them for several hours, or put them in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes @ 15 lbs.. Since it's cotton, odds are they will be about 3 sizes smaller when they come out, but at least the glue will be gone.

Half of my side of the closet is full of work shirts. Two night ago was wearing good cloths after church and told wife I was going down to honey house for a second and check something. She told me " dont get you good clothes dirty". Wel guess what? Bumped up against a stack of supers that still had a wet spot that we painted a few days ago. Have this wonderufl bright green mark on my pants. Went over to sink to try and clean it up, the towel I grabed had grease on it that I did not see till I started to clean the paint. So I returned home with a green greasy spot. I now have some pretty snazzy new " duckhead" work pants. Wife told me so.....:no:

You can allways tell a happy woodworker by the amount of glue on their clothes, and a happy beek by the beeswax and propolis under the nails.:D
