Cleaning Ink Out of a Dryer

How do I remove gel ink from my dryer?


Cleaning Ink Out of a Dryer

After reading all the tips, decided to combine a few. Bingo. This worked like a charm. Put rubber gloves on. Put 2 cups bleach in a bucket and added some water until about 1/2 full. Soaked an old large beach towel in the water. I guess you could use 2 regular size towels. It absorbed all the water and no need to "wring" it out. Put it in the dryer and turned it on. Checked it about 30 minutes later and most of the ink was gone.


There were a few heavy spots of ink left, so again using rubber gloves, took the still wet towel out, put some fingernail polish remover on a Mr. Clean Magic Pad and the spots came out instantly. There were some residual swirls of ink left, so put the wet towel back in the dryer for another 15 minutes. The drum was sparkling after that. It looks brand new inside. I did wipe down the inside with a clean wet dishrag afterward to get any bleach that might have been left. It was really easy. Highly recommend this method.

Try rubbing alcohol, if that doesn't work take fingernail polish remover on a paper towel and dab at it, this should take it right out. (02/05/2010)
