    Hairspray takes out ink. I'd put paper towels behind it and spray,

    spray, spray. Blot the stain until most of it is gone. I have used up

    a can of spray doing this, but it saved a pair of pants.

    <FONT color="#008080">As long as you haven't dried the shirt in the dryer or put it on a line and heated it up, then you should be able to get the ink stains out with alcohol. The alcohol in the hair-spray is what gets out ink stains.
    <FONT color="#008080">If you have dried the shirt in the dryer, then good luck! Maybe a dry cleaner might be able to get it out.

    Hi! I don't know if this will work on pen ink, but I got black gel food

    coloring in a shirt Sat. and used Power House Oxygen Wash (it's in a

    blue spray bottle). I think it was bought at Dollar Tree. Anyway, I

    sprayed it on, let it sit a couple hours and the stain had almost

    completely dissapeared. Hope it works!

    I have used cheep hair spray on washed but not dried ink stains. Place a

    old rag under the stain and spray. Worked to get ink out of a white

    shirt of X husband - his shirt was a white one - as he was a paramedic -

    go figure. Not what I think they should wear to deal with mud, blood and

    such, but oh well. Blood was taken out easily with peroxide.

    Hope this helps.

    Apparently, hairspray is a super ink-removal product. Sounds wacky, I

    know, but it's all over the Internet as a real solution.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I tried the hairspray and as it did get out a lot of the ink, there was still a big black blob on the shirt. I did this for about a day, off and on blotting and scrubbing. I then tried the dishwasher liquid (i used electrosol) and OMG! I left it overnight, about 8 hrs and the ink is <span style="font-weight: bold;">completely gone where I put the liquid (except on the underside). It did lighten the color just a bit, but not enough to really stand out. Maybe if I didn't leave it so long? Anyway, wanted to pass that along that it does work and no scrubbing!
