The pen is mightier than the sword, but you don’t have to let tough ink stains defeat your favorite shirt.

Removing ink stains from whites

On the go 

It’s hard to remove ink stains on the go, but you can make it easier to deal with later. Try rubbing in a little hand sanitizer, working from outside in to help prevent stain from spreading. Blot to lift up the ink, repeating as needed. Then rub with regular bar soap and rinse in cold water. 

At home

Pretreat with a good solvent, then wash on the hottest recommended water setting along with your favorite detergent. Use Clorox® Regular-Bleach for whites. Repeat as needed, and check for success before drying.
