Hey guys, With NYE celebrations over (over here, at least), I'm confronted once again with the most annoying party novelty ever: Glitter. For those that don't know, it's this aerosol stuff that sprays out hundreds of tiny flecks of glitter, and, I, inevitably, get sprayed whenever it makes an appearance. The problems with it are legion: It sticks to everything; it won't shake out; it's annoyingly visible when you go out in public, but oddly invisible when you're trying to get rid of it. If you don't remove every speck from your clothing, it tends to spread to everything else in your closet. It's like a shimmery plague... Anyone know what I'm talking about, and how to get rid of it? On NYE, I wore an old black poly/viscose sportcoat so as not to have any good clothes ruined by the rain, and now it's covered. For the record, steaming doesn't work, adhesive tape doesn't work, a good shake doesn't work, wet sponges and washcloths don't work. My only other, time-consuming options are brushing and picking each fleck off by hand. Does anyone have some kind of handy tip or miracle solution? Thanks, Nick.
