Maybe but I'm sure it will come back have exactly the same problem. Warning if you decide to buy a tub of fabsil in the summer and sit down on it while you paint and rub it in make sure you don't sit where you have done. It burns your skin wasn't the most comfortable week after!

Washing up liquid and bleach works a treat. Scrub it in with a brush and rinse well.
