    Hair spray or alcohol will remove ink. Blot carefully and slowly. It will come off.

    Always try it on a unnoticeable part of the fabric to make sure it won't change the color or fabric texture. I always used alcohol on my nursing uniforms to take dried ink out of them, both black and red ink came out without a problem.

    Hi Cynthia,

    Dee gave you a good suggestion, the alcohol will do the work, be patient and repeat steps until gone, then launder as usual. If all the ink is not out after washing, do not put the fabric in the clothes dryer, it will set the stain permanently. Just redo with either alcolol or hairspray.

    I've always heard to spray it w/hairspray & rub it out.
