I'm confused. It's 3 days old and so far I've tried baby wipes, baking soda, and lemon juice, but today I found out my husband had washed it (in cold water only).
Do I need to reactivate it, is it possible and how can I do it?

I have done this on my ex husbands shirt even after washing and drying and it worked. Hairspray the ink and have a blotting cloth under it, then wash as normal and double check it before drying. Sometimes (depending on the ink) you have to do it twice but it has always worked for me. Good luck.
Like Quinnba, I would suggest milk. Just soak the inky area in the milk for a couple of hours and wash as normal( cold water, hot might set the stain) hopefully that should work...good luck
Does anyone have any tips on how to get blue pen ink from cotton fabric? The fabric is a pale green bedspread. Also, if you have any tips on how to remove the same ink from a painted wall that has been painted with flat paint in yellow.
Thank you for any help.

How can I remove an ink stain from a cotton blouse (white) that has already been treated with spot remover and washed?

Then, on a whim, I tried mixing some OxiClean (the white powder) into a paste and applying it with a toothbrush. The stain literally dissolved under my eyes. I was amazed. One more treatment and a gentle rinse, and the jacket looks perfect now (I've attached a picture of where there used to be a dark blue, 2 inch wide stain). So try OxiClean! (06/15/2010)
