  • Hairspray will disolve ink right away then wash out later (air dry to be sure it's out before drying with heat which would set it in)

  • For really serious ink stains OXY-CLEAN is the only real way to ensure that all ink will be removed. This should help...

  • Use alcohol-based hair spray. The role of alcohol will loosen the ink molecules. Placing an absorbent towel under the stain will help avoid the stain from spreading. It will instead soak up the stain. Blotting with a clean cloth would also help. Do this for some time till the ink stops staining the towel or the cloth. Finally launder the garment as usual. kk :)
