Youâ€™ve got to love the masters of the pen spin:
But what do you do if that pen trick you just learned goes horribly wrong and you drag a ballpoint right across your brand new shirt? According to About.comâ€™s Guide to Removing Ink Stains:
- Lay the stained area on top of a clean dry white towel. Apply rubbing alcohol/nail polish remover to the ink stain and blot with another clean white cloth, removing the stain as you blot. Rinse thoroughly.
- Apply your normal liquid laundry detergent onto the ink stain and allow the garment to sit for 3-5 minutes.
- Wash in the warmest water that the fabric can tolerate.
- Before drying, double check to make sure the stain was removed. If not, repeat the previous steps until it is.
Thankfully, theyâ€™ve also included instructions for water based ink stains as well as permanent ink stains so that you can combat any kind that may cross your path.
