I just washed a ton of clothes today and thought I had cleaned out DH pockets well. He had a pen in a pair of pants that I missed (from work). I know have ink stains on all of our pants and some other clothes like shirts and socks. It's also on my light brown coat. Is there anything I can do to get it out for the next wash? I am devastated by this! It's the only time it's happened and I didn't catch it cause I was pissed at said hubby. TIA!
Give more**Expect Less There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.
Put a towel or something else absorbant that can get inky on the back or inside of the ink-stained item. Blot the other side of the item (idrectly on the stain) with rubbing alcohol. Or hairspray if you don't have any alcohol. Even if it is already dryer-set, you may still be able to get it out. Keep blotting, and moving the towel so it can absorb more ink- if you don't move it you will never get it all up.
If that doesn't work, you can always go to the store and buy a product called Stain Devil- there are fomulations for just about everything.
