Months ago I changed a tyre on my utility bicycle in street clothes. An unfortunate set of vulcanising stains are now on street clothes I'd like to wear more often. How do I remove dried vulcaniser from medium weight cotton cloth?

I don't know if the clothing was cotton, cotton blend or what have you, but this has worked for me in the past:
By no means will this always work. Depending on the fabric and dye, even if you get all the glue off the clothing you may still be stuck with visible spots or stains. But, if like me, you got cement on a favorite pair of work pants while fixing a flat on your morning commute it's probably worth the effort. If it doesn't work, you weren't going to wear the clothes much with the stains anyway.
