Ink on a Washed and Dried Tablecloth

How would I get ink out of a white tablecloth that has been washed and dried?

I would pre-treat the stain with oxyclean or one of the stronger stain removers since tablecloth is white then rewash and hang in direct sun. Sun is a great bleaching agent.

The table cloth is yellow with different colored flowers?

Try hairspray on both sides to possibly loosen it then pre-treat. Hope this works for you.

This isn't advice about getting an ink stain out but a suggestion if you can't get it out:

When anyone sits at that table to visit or eat or whatever with that table cloth on (obviously they would be family or friends) just simply hand an ink pen to them and ask them to sign their name. Embroider each signed name with embroidery colored thread of your choice and you'll have a forever keepsake and the ink stain won't matter anymore. Actually, you can also make a design out of that original stain to start the keepsake process. :-)

Try blotting a little rubbing alcohol on the stain and then launder.

Try putting a white cloth on bottom of stained area of tablecloth then spray hairspray on the spot. It should bleed through to the cloth and out of the tablecloth. Hope this works. I've tried it on several white dress shirts and it worked. You can also turn over the tablecloth and do it on the other side as well. Good luck.

I have had luck with removing ink and paint from fabric with hand sanitizer, use liberally and rub or use a brush on the spot, then launder as usual, also hanging in the sun is a great way to brighten whites of all types.

I've always had great success with aerosol hair spray but you can also make a paste with baking soda and peroxide and rub it into the fabric with a toothbrush.
