Blot
Blot the stain to lift up the ink, repeating as needed.

Rub
Rub the stain with a regular soap bar and then rinse with cold water.

Wash
Wash with detergent in the hottest recommended water. Add Clorox® Regular Bleach2 with CLOROMAX® to whites, or Clorox® Stain Remover & Color Booster to colors.

If the pen is mightier than the first wash — repeat as needed, checking for success before drying.
