Yep, he dumped white out on a really nice pair of brand new shorts. He's 8 and was crying. The internet says blot it with acetone. I spilled the acetone on our kitchen table and it ate the finish off a 5"x6" area. I'm quitting now before the house burns down or something.

I thought white out is water soluble? They only put it on paper. You could just try putting it in the washing machine
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

I don't thing that the kitchen table will fit in the washing machine.
Maybe a Speed Queen. Industrial size.
A mind is a terrible thing.

Acetone is bad shit. It surprises me that wimmenfolk use it on their fingernails. If I used something that smelled like that to clean my guns, the complaints about “fumes” would be epic.
I use the white out tape instead. Sorry about your sons new shorts, lesson learned.

Haven't tried it on white out, but I have used brake part cleaner and goo gone with great success on a variety of stuff that stains.
Start with a brush and Dawn dishwashing liquid. Not a knock off, must be real deal Dawn. I’ve been quite surprised on what it will help take off. And, it doesn’t damage the clothes (off brands might leave a blue stain).
Good enough for ducks... cheap to try.

I think some people might have missed the part where in the process of trying to clean my son's shorts I screwed up and now have to refinish the $900 kitchen table.
The saying should be the difference between men and boys is the price of the things they screw up.
I dunno, coulda been worse:
Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.
Brake clean will nuke athletic shorts or any other poly type material I'd think.

My kids never cry about clothes
This sounds racist to me......
The elephant in the room is the Table Finish !
That hurts me .... I got gorilla super glue on my coffee table .... I see it right now. Not repairable ..
My first year in college. I took my laundry to a laundromat – first time mom didn’t wash my clothes. I had new bluejeans and a new red flannel shirt. My white jockey shorts came out lavender. Embarrassing. Could’ve used some whitening.
Depending on location, place mats and runner. Or, table cloth for your new look are a quick fix. Experience speaking.

My kids cry that they have to wear clothes.
No help bout the table other than cover with a tablecloth til you have time refinish or money to have someone do it for you.
I don't generally wear white cos it's hard to keep clean. Well, I got Board Certified in my department & now have to wear a white lab coat. 1st time wearing my new coat, I dropped superglue on the collar. I haven't tried it but the internet said to use acetone too. I have 2 other white lab coats so one of these days I will experiment to see if it works. Let us know if you try the acetone on the shorts & what the outcome is.

Well many decades ago my then young bride, who had not a clue about wood finishes (come to think of it, neither did I), used our newly purchased rosewood dining table as an impromptu ironing board. Awk.
Subsequently I managed to steam out some of the heat damage to the clear coat over the stain (a very, VERY cloudy haze), but to this day it continues to wear that nearly forgotten (table cloths work wonders) heat damage as a badge of honor of our first months together under the same roof.
Call Michael Nesmith (The Monkees). His mother invented it, which is why he doesn't do Monkees reunion tours.
