Question Help! I got ink my shirt!

I bumped into an open black memento ink pad while wearing my new white tank top. It didn't saturate the knit fabric, but it left a noticeable mark on the surface. Does anyone know how to remove it? Is it even possible or should I just start stamping all over the the thing and pretend it's intentional?

I know hairspray is good at removing ballpoint ink so I'd try that. You cna always stamp all over it if that doesn't work (I like the way you think!)

Good luck!

I went to a cardmaking class and when I got home noticed I somehow got tiny red ink spots on my shirt - on the yellow and white parts. Made a paste with OxiClean and water, put it on the spots, left it overnight, ran it through a cold wash cycle and the spots were gone.

Good luck!

Let us know! I would have just assumed there was no hope, but these girls have some good suggestions.

I'm pulling for you!

I was able to remove Palette Noir Black ink from a pair of khaki pants by putting a white towel under the stain, saturating the stain with goo gone, and then dabbing from the top with another clean white towel. It took multiple goo gone applications and a final wash with some Shout, but the stain came out (much to my surprise).

There is a product called "Awesome" that I found at The Dollar Tree that works wonderfully! Can't beat the price!

Just wanted to update: I've tried Simple Green, milk and a few other household cleaners to no avail. I'll give OxiClean a shot tonight.

Boob prints! Never lean over a open stamp pad. Trust me.
(Don't we all have a few of those?)

I hope some of these suggestions work for you.

How about Shout in the can. I really love that stuff.

I got black ink on my coat sleeve when I did a make 'n' take at Archiver's once. Another stamper suggested a specific stain removal product. I can't for the life of me remember the name of the product, but you can find it in the laundry aisle at the grocery, it comes in a small yellow bottle (about 3-4 inches tall), and I think the name starts with a "C". The one for removing ink and crayon removed the ink from my (washable) coat sleeve. (Not much help, I know! Sad....)

I know rubbing alcohol takes out Sharpie marker. I'm not sure if it would work on your stain.

My dh recently washed a load of his white dress shirts...with a black fountain pen left in one of the pockets. DOH! He used the Oxiclean soaking method, and it worked very well. He'd make a bowl of oxiclean solution, and shove the section of stained shirt into the bowl to soak.

Hope that helps!

rubbing alcohol will work on Copic markers on clothes but have not had to get any other ink out of clothes. Did (or still do) have black memento ink on the carpet. It did wear out (mostly) over time but I could probably still find it if I look real hard.

What about Grandma's Secret Spot Remover? They sell it in a little bottle up by the check out at Hobby Lobby. I know that takes out Copic marker.

Try using liquid soap for the dishwasher (Cascade) direct from the bottle. I accidentally splashed some on a pair of dark green shorts and all the spots turned white! Now if I could just find the right color ink to put the color back!

Have you tried Stampin' Mist? It takes blood out of clothing and carpet...

It should at least fade the stain.

Otherwise, Oxy Clean is my used-for-everything cleaner.

Try Simple Green! I have had success getting ink out with this before. If you don't have any try fingernail polish remover.
Best of luck!
