    Id start with some rubbing alcohol...then move into the more agressive solvents. http://housekeeping.about.com/od/stainremoval/a/inkstains.htm

    Soak it in Biz for a couple of days and then rub it with hands under the water. Wash with bleach and some white towels in warm water. Biz is the only thing that works for me on various stains including grass & mud stains in my granddaughter's pants on the knees from playing on the playground at school each day.

    Soak a thin cloth with Hydron Peroxide and let it sit on the stain for about an hour. Also add a bit more to the cloth after you cover the stain. When removing the cloth, first dab the area then wipe in an upward motion, If the first application does not get it all, try again. I have used this method on ALL kinds of stains including dried blood. It works. Good luck,

    You can buy an ink removal product in the laundry section of Walmart.

    Anyone old enough to remember good old fashion "Hair Spray" Aqua net use to work great on white jackets I use to wear at the pharmacy where I worked in my high school years. I bet it still works great. Spray on and rub out, Gary
