Removing Ink From Clothing

Remove ink from clothing: Read the care label! If it
says dry-clean only, or the mark is large, rush it to the
cleaners. Washable? Try cleaning fluid, spot remover,
or petroleum-based pre-wash spray. Test in an
inconspicuous area to be sure it's safe for the fabric.
Place garment stain side down on paper towels and
dab cleaner on stain using a paper or terry-cloth towel.
Check paper towels underneath and move frequently
so there's always a clean area under the stain to absorb
ink. Let area dry and check it. If ink remains, treat with
prewash spray and launder. Before drying, check again.
Still visible? Repeat steps.
