I have an ink stain on my Police uniform shirt (cotton/poly blend). What is the best way to remove the stain?
I have a two-step process for dealing with ink stains that will hopefully help, but first you need to determine the colorfastness of the shirt. Many colored dress shirts can be safely bleached. Check by doing a quick bleachability test:
Next, treat the stain as follows:
If the shirt doesn’t pass the bleachability test, then use Clorox 2® Stain Remover and Color Booster:
The biggest problem with ink stains is when it is super concentrated (like when a pen leaks). If that’s the case, then it may require multiple treatments to get the stain completely out. Just be sure to continue to air dry the shirt until you achieve success.
Has anyone else had an unlucky encounter with a leaky pen recently?
