My daughter is 1 year old. She scribbled on her baby blanket with a ballpoint pen. It's Mother Care brand and it says the material is 80% cotton and 20 % polyester. I was hoping I could show the picture, but it's not loading.

Hello, Zainab, Try hairspray - any brand. I've had a lot of luck soaking the ink with hairspray, then work at it by rubbing the stain first holding part of the fabric in each hand and rubbing against each other until it starts to smear. Rinse with cold water and it should be lighter. Spray again with hairspray and repeat, possibly a couple more times. You may then have to "scratch" at any remaining stain with your fingernails after soaking with hairspray to get the last bit out, but it usually works.
Rubbing alcohol works well to remove ink stains. You may need to soak the stain in alcohol and then rub it with a cloth rag saturated with alcohol. Putting paper towels or another rag under the stain while you are rubbing it will absorb the ink.
