  • I hope you didnt already dry them. If you didnt already dry them, just leave them in the washer and wash them again.

  • your best bet is to try to presoak in bleach, but once you dry them it usually sets the stain in.

  • I have had this problem and nothing I have found will take ink out of clothes once dry, not even the special stain remover that claims to remove ink. I tried.
