Dear Heloise...

OK. I have a dilemma involving glitter, glue and a bathroom sink.

We used blue and silver glitter glue for Julia's R2-D2 costume (which the rain kind of ruined before we could get pictures.) When she tried the costume on, the glue wasn't quite dry. While she was trying to look at herself in our bathroom mirror, she leaned up against the sink and got blue and silver glitter glue on the front of our white porcelain pedestal sink. We didn't realize it right away, and when we found it later, it was good and dry. Any clue how to get this off?

    Try this stuff, I think it's called Goop, or something like that. You can get it at any hardware or auto parts store. There is an O'Riely in ya'lls neighborhood, they have it. The instructions are on the bottle. I know it gets paint off of stuff, so it should work with glue.

    If not that try paint thinner or something like it. Be careful not to use too much, but it shouldn't hurt the sink.

    there is also some stuff called Goo Gone that you can get at Wal-Mart. If all else fails, i got some acrilic paint off my clothes with rubbing alcohol-that might work.

    Baby wipes... they take care of everything, along w/ a good bit of elbow grease. Good luck!

    Try WD 40. It gets gum out of human hair.

    I think you should leave it there and cover the entire sink with a similar mixture. That way, you'll have a totally awesome sink that the kids will love for years! :-D

    Yeah, Paige, except for the fact that it's in MY bathroom!

    Well, OK, that makes sense...but maybe you should do that to their sink! :-D

    Have you tried Mr. Clean's MAGIC ERASER? Might not work on your problem but it ROCKS on almost everything I've tried it on.
