If you are a klutz like me, I bet you have at one time or another, gotten an ink stain on your clothes. With me, it’s been quite a few times.
Washing alone, won’t get the ink out. And if you wash the garment, and then dry it in the dryer, you might as well throw it out. The ink stain is set in for good.
As soon as you notice the stain, get your hairspray, the kind that has acetone in it, and spray the area of the stain liberally. Let it set for 10 minutes and then rinse.
Spray again and let it set a few more minutes and then wash in cold water in your washing machine. If the stain is still there when you remove it from the washer, repeat the above steps.
Once the stain is out, then it is safe to put the garment in the dryer.
