    Lay the piece of clothing with the Silly Putty on it onto a flat surface and stretch the material until it is taut. It is important to have the material taut as it makes the process of removing the Silly Putty much easier.

    Step 2Depending on the size of the Silly Putty that is adhered to the clothing, you will need to soak a cotton ball or the tip of a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Once you have the cotton soaked with the alcohol, press it into the Silly Putty to transfer as much of the alcohol into the putty as possible. If necessary, repeat this step several times until the Silly Putty is thoroughly covered with rubbing alcohol.

    Step 3While ensuring that the material is still taut, gently scrape at the Silly Putty with a butter knife. The majority of the Silly Putty should come off the first time. You may need to reapply more rubbing alcohol and then repeat this step.

    Step 4Once the Silly Putty has been removed completely from the clothing, launder the clothing item as usual.

    I tried the ice and the rubbing alcohol with no result. It was neon yellow Silly Putty on a merino wool sweater. WD-40 worked the miracle.
