Hairspray, either in the aerosol can or pump. I have used on pen ink it works good. Might take a few treatments with that and some cold water. If not maybe try an internet search under “laundry tips” take care and good luck.
**Make sure to put white paper towels, or something else white in the pocket behind the stain. I would try saturating the area with hair spay also, and as the ink starts to loosen, it will transfer to the paper towels, and not to the material behind it. Just keep using clean paper towels.
From one mom to another, I'll say a prayer for you.**
Thank you everyone for your help. I will continue to work on the stain, he leaves Tuesday for active duty in our state for flood relief, so no finding another shirt. They are issued 3 shirts, that is it.
Thanks for your suggestions, now I need the prayers.
Thanks for your help. My husband decided he would solve the problem. He used carborator cleaner with lots of paper towels behind it and the ink came out immediately. Of course it stinks really bad, so now he is washing it.
Did all the ink come out? I have no idea what that is, although it sounds like something I would get in an auto shop or car aisle… I tried the hairspray last year with my daughters school bermudas/shorts but after several tries (and ink did come out each time) I kind of gave up, because it still looked just as stained even though it seemed like ink was coming off.
Nail polish remover and the heavy duty Spray ’ Wash stain remover. Soak the stains and let them sit for several days. Wash them and repeat, but don’t dry them! Keep doing it until you can get out as much of the stains as possible. The amount of time it takes stinks, but it is cheaper than buying all new uniforms.
I have also found that different uniform maker’s materials act differently - some stains come out, some don’t. Same with t-shirts of different materials. Some of the stains disappeared literally right before my eyes, some just faded. When using the nail polish remover, pour some straight on the stain; holding the cloth up agaisnt the bottle opening and then tipping it controls wasting the liquid. Also - don’t rub the material and don’t let wet, stained parts sit on top of anything that is not stained, especially other parts of the uniform - it spreads the stain. Learned the hard way.
