My DH supposedly cleaned out the pockets of his ACUs (army uniforms) and then put them in a pile for me to wash... of course the one time I don't double check the pockets he leaves a pen in them it leaked!!! Thankfully it only got on the shirt the he left it in but I really need to get the ink out if I can. Any tips or things to try?

I found that hairspray works on already washed pen ink, but it depends on how much ink there is.

Folex carpet cleaner gets ink out of carpet. I used it once on a shirt of DD's to get out lipstick and it worked. Might be worth a try.

I just spray till it's soaked, let sit for a few mins and then wash/rewash. 9 outta 10 times it works.<br><br>
I'm guessing it's the alcohol in it so plain alcohol might work too.

I think it's the alcohol in the hairspray.

So if I rubbed some rubbing alcohol on it would that work? We don't have hairspray... he can't wear the uniform top with ink stains so I am willing to try anything to get it out...
