Pen Ink Remover


Well I just washed and dried my smock and realized that I left a pen in my pocket. Ugh! It is so frustrating when that happens! The majority of the ink got on a pair of pajama bottoms, and I didn't have the patience to remove all the ink, so in the trash they went. My smock however, is salvageable.


Steps to Removing Pen Ink on Cotton and Polyester Clothing

1.  Cut up pieces of paper towels that are slightly larger than the ink stain.

2.  Place a piece of paper towel underneath the stain. Dab the stain on top with another piece of paper towel saturated with rubbing alcohol. Don't scrub the stain as it will spread the ink on the fabric.

3.  Replace the paper towels and continue to blot until the stain is almost gone. This process takes some patience but worth it if you would like to salvage the garment.

4.  Run it under cold water.

5.  Wash garment in the washer with regular laundry detergent. After the wash cycle, the stain should be removed.

Caution: Rubbing alcohol is flammable so DO NOT use around flames or smokers.

  3. It’s really irritating when your carefully cared-for leather becomes the innocent victim of an unintentional attack by a ball point or felt tip, or ink that has somehow escaped.
