ABU Laundry Question

Posted by on Mar. 28, 2011 at 11:38 AM

 DH has a really bad habit of leaving pens in his ABUs. I try to make sure I check them before I wash but I sometimes miss it and don't find the pen or the stain until after it's been through the dryer. At this point almost all of his uniforms have an ink stain somewhere on it. Is there anything I can safely use to remove the ink stains? We really don't want to have to replace all of his uniforms! I've done a google search and have seen things like hairspray and dawn could work but I want to make sure those products themselves won't ruin the uniform. Does anyone have any experience with this? Were you able to get the stains out? What did you use? TIA! :)

Is there an inconspicuous spot you could test on?

I have done this before, luckily the stain fell inside a fold so it was not very noticable at all. I just would treat it with oxiclean everytime I would wash it. The stain faded, but never completely went away.

Eek! I am not really sure. I hope you can get it fixed.

That stuff should be fine. I stopped washing my dh's uniforms because I got tired of other clothes getting ruind from his pens.
