What are good ways of getting taylor's chalk
out of fabric?

The chalk is at the hem line (no, not the
blow-on chalk), and I was able to get most
of it out by brushing and then with a little
water and sponging, but there's still some
there.

I was thinking of just laundering it, but
wasn't sure if the detergent would just
make it stick tighter.

The fabric is polyester satin, if that
makes a difference.  (It says it's machine
washable.)

If you have a piece of heavy flannel from a previous project, try
wiping it with a few strokes of the flannel.  If not, try using a new
soft tootbrush.

Is it genuine tailors' chalk? I've never had a problem removing it.
