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!

After washing the light colored pile of laundry with no problems, I loaded them in the dryer. When the timer went on up, I opened the dryer door and nearly had a heart attack when I spotted a fine tipped black ink pen inside without a lid among the clothes. Sure enough there were black dots and stains the size of a punch hole on all the clothes.

I am very upset that all of my son's and husband's favorite shirts have these stains and cannot be used until they are removed. I checked the internet and found that these stains should be treated before drying, but this happened in the dryer, so what can be done to remove the stains? Any life savers?

Try spraying the heck out of it on both sides with hairspray, blotting as you go. It may take some time and patience. Good luck and I hope it works for you. It's worked for me before they've been dried in a dryer. (03/16/2010)

How do I remove gel ink from dried clothes?

There is a laundry product called Amodex, that is specifically for ink. If your grocery store doesn't have it, try a hardware store. It works best on stains that have not already been treated. (02/01/2010)

Spill in on the rest of the clothes and start a new fashion trend. Or send them to me and I'll do it. I'm entirely serious. (11/24/2009)

Get an applique you love and put it on the pockets. If you can't clean it, cover it. (11/28/2009)

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?
