It can be difficult to remove ink from clothing. This guide is about removing ink stains from clothing.
I washed and dried a load of laundry and after it dried I discovered that I had left a lipstick and a pen in a pocket. Also, one baby sheet has a blood stain. Is there anything that I can try to remove the stains; they are mostly baby items.
How do I remove ball point ink from clothing?
I had ballpoint pen on my good rain jacket and my friend told me to spray some hairspray on the mark and blot with a paper towel and it really worked!
(not sure if I sent this in yesterday or not)
Hairspray works. So does alcohol on a Qtip or cotton ball. Always test in a seam to be sure the color doesn't run or that it doesn't leave a ring.
Spray deodorant on the stain, then rub with a cloth. It should come off. If it doesn't come off straight away, but instead only fades after you have rubbed it, then spray more deodorant on the stain. :)

Use hairspray to treat any type of ink stain (permanent marker, ink pen, etc.). Throw it in the wash machine and voila! No more stain. I have been doing this for years and it works fantastic. I bought a prom dress at 85% off because of the ink stain on it. The saleslady told me how to get it out all those many years ago and it is still the best for removing this type of stain.

My sister works on Dubai; I live in the Philippines. Since Christmas is close she bought a new pair of Air Max Tr 365 for me. When I was writing with a marker it ran out of ink, then I got some refill ink. When I was refilling it the refill ink poured in my shoes. I removed some of it, but the back of my shoes that says "MAXAIR" got covered in ink.
So please tell me what to do because they are from my hard working sister and it's brand new, what should I use to remove it? If you don't know the Air Max TR 365 please search for it so you may see the back of it.
If you can find the manufacturers name on the ink bottle you could google to find a phone number and call them. They would best know how to remove the ink from your shoes. If the doesn't work, you might be able to paint over it with fabric paints from a craft store.
When I was doing laundry I discovered that my husband left an ink pen in his pocket. I have a knit top that I tried using Spray and Wash, Shout, and Oxiclean on and have washed 4 times, but nothing has worked. Is there anything that might work after all of this?

thank you for being detailed. People just say use this and don't say what steps to take in doing it. Thank you very much!
If you wash the clothing in COLD water, the bleach will only affect the stained parts. Might save you the next time, and thanks for the hint, as my husband left a pen in his shirt which went through the washer AND dryer in the pocket! Yikes. I keep finding things that are affected. I will try bleach on a Q-tip on my favorite white jeans that got some tiny stains which are hardly noticeable!

How do I remove black roller ball ink on white cotton duvet.
sounds like soap residue from your washing machine. I had this with my hard water. You need to use vinegar rinses for your clothing. But first clean your washing machine by pouring a jug of vinegar in the wash cycle (with no laundry) and hot water cycle. Then pre-treat the stains on the spattered laundry with vinegar and wash again. Good Luck!

Hello. This happened to me. A load of dark clothes was washed and dried with a red ink pen. I used hairspray on the clothes and had a cloth to rub the ink out. It works!
I heard that babywipes will get the ink out of clothes. They say use a baby to plot the stain and then lay it over with a bit of pressure let it set for a hour or more and the use a stain remover spray and wash. I havent got to try it yet but I do know that it worked on lock tight from when I worked at trailer factory. Good luck!

I always had succes removing ink by using old fashioned hairspray in the can, just spray it to saturate, then blot well, and repeat until gone, or almost gone, then wash.
I spray ink with hairspray. Usually comes out. Judy - also from Lansing
