Ballpoint Pen Ink
For ballpoint ink we recommend an alcohol-based hair spray. The alcohol content in the hair spray will break up the ink.
If the ink is on clothing, saturate the item with hair spray. Be sure to place an absorbent paper towel or rag under the stain to catch the excess ink. You then need to blot the stain with a rag. Repeat this process until the stain is removed, then launder as usual.
If the ink is on anything other than clothing, spray the hair spray directly on the stain and then wipe off with a clean paper towel or rag. You might need to do this a few times depending on the size of the stain.
A word of caution before trying any of the methods suggested: some surfaces and fabrics may be damaged by the hair spray solution. If in doubt, test on a "hidden" area first.
Roller and Brite Liner Ink
Our Roller and Brite Liner inks are water-based and we recommend trying an all-purpose cleaner instead of hair spray.
If the ink is on clothing, saturate the item with the all-purpose cleaner. Be sure to place an absorbent paper towel or rag under the stain to catch the excess ink. You then need to blot the stain with a rag. Repeat this process until the stain is removed, then launder as usual.
If the ink is on anything other than clothing, spray the all-purpose cleaner directly on the stain and then wipe off with a clean paper towel or rag. You might need to do this a few times depending on the size of the stain.
A word of caution before trying any of the methods suggested: some surfaces and fabrics may be damaged by the all-purpose cleaners. If in doubt, test on a "hidden" area first and follow the manufacturer's directions.
