I want to know how to remove dried ink from the dryer drum.
By Joanne from Canyon, BC
Get a spray bottle and put in a 50/50 mix of rubbing alcohol and water. Spray it on the ink and scrub it out with a sponge. (12/17/2009)
Avoid mean wife trouble if you made a mistake and left your pen in your pants and it stained the dryer. I tried the bleach soaked towels but that left some big splotches. Had to find something in the house while the wife watches TV upstairs. Combined two tips: Shout Ultra Gel and steel wool. Took a little effort but now the dryer is spotless, fresh clothes are in it drying and the unsuspecting wife still upstairs. (Had to throw the pants away though!) (12/19/2009)
Fingernail polish and a scrub pad is all you need. It really works. 100% ink free in the dryer! I would not recommend the bleach method. You ruin four towels and the bleach is left in the drum and in the filter of the dryer. In my opinion, too much time and money. (12/19/2009)
Try Krud Kutter from your local hardware store. Apply it on a cloth to wet the stain down. It's works unbelievably and is safe too. (12/20/2009)
The bleached towels worked wonders for me. 30 minutes later the dryer is free of the stains. I would recommend this tip to anyone. (01/17/2010)
