    Default Laundry - remove ink stains?

    Husband left pen in his new ACU shirt when washed. Any good tips to

    get as much out?

    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!
