Removing Dried Ink from Clothing

I left an ink pen in my wash and dried it. It got all over everything. Is it possible to wash it out?

Leave it in a bucket of warm water for 24-48 hours and Presto!

Your ink is out. ( :

Do you have to keep the water warm for the entire 24-48 hours?

Have you tried rubbing alcohol? Try a little in an area where no one will notice first, though.

I left a pen in my pocket and washed all my uniforms and now they are all covered in black spots

I had the same thing happen in my dryer 2 weeks after I purchased it. After some research I used deep woods off with DEET. Sprayed it on a cloth and wiped down the inside of the dryer...Miraculously the ink wiped right off! I then washed some old white rags in bleach and dried them on high...that took the DEET smell out of the dryer and the rags had NO INK on them so I knew then that the dryer was good to use again!
