Permanent ink

Always read and follow the care instructions and any warnings on the clothing label



Permanent Inks are almost impossible to remove


To have any chance you need to treat immediately. The first step is to force water through the stain before it dries to remove excess ink. Allow to dry.

Sponge the stain with dry cleaning solvent. (Read and follow the directions carefully, it is toxic) Allow the fabric to dry. Rub a liquid detergent into the stain, rinse.

Soak the stain in warm water to which 1 to 4 tablespoons of household ammonia have been added.

Rinse and repeat if stain is lessoning. Launder.

Some inks on white fabric may be removed with a dye stripper. Follow package instructions. For stains on coloured fabrics, check for colour-fastness. Also, be aware that these products will affect all colours on the fabric.
