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 have used the cheap hairspray solution too! Sometimes you have to spray until the fabric is wet and wash (don't put it in the dryer!) several times, but it will come out. I have a pair of khaki shorts that had ink all over the front and it all came out after about 3 washings.

I washed my husband's uniforms and I got green ink all over them. Then I dried them and forgot the pen was in there. So how do I get it out?
