Let me save you the trouble...

In case you've ever wondered what would happen if you let a three year old play with Silly Putty on the couch. It is a really, really bad idea. 


Replacing the couch may just have moved way up on the list of priorities.

i don't really understand how this happened...did the silly putty melt or something? i thought the point was that it doesn't stick stick, only makes impressions of things.

Gwen: He sat on it and Silly putty's ability to not stick is greatly compromised by heat and pressure. And even in normal circumstances silly putty and fabric are a bad combination.

Oh, I wish I could have saved you that trouble! Silly putty and gum (as you know) are on my list of banned substances. Ammon slept with his silly putty one night with very similar results - with the addition of getting it matted into his hair. So sorry. You can try ice, but the best way to get it up is with more silly putty. It still sticks to itself pretty well. Unfortunately, not well enough to get it all.

Can you just flip the couch cushion over? Problem solved. Also, dinosaur drivers are the worst. Even worse than Utah drivers.

Putting rubbing alcohol works too. Been there, done that:)
