* See first document for experimentation idea origin. Below are the steps followed during the process and my results.:)
** Design 100% by Maple Mehndi. I claim NO CREDIT for the design, just for the ability to apply it.
People were also wondering if the potato eraser on an old stain would erase at all.
So I decided to continue with my experimentation.
This experiment is conducted on a 5-7 day old design. I had left the paste on overnight with Hypafix tape and gloves. I did not however take very good care of the design as I wash dishes without gloves, so the stain was beginning to fade considerably.
After leaving the potato slice on my skin for a little over five minutes, I then proceeded to rub the stain for say… 30 seconds.
Next, the result.
Potato on old stain = barely visible difference.
I question if rubbing is what did the slight erasing, not the potato… I would rather exfoliation at this point for better stain removal results.
