Angry how to remove a ink stain

I just washed AND dried DH's ABU's... with an ink pen! I didnt realize this till after they was dry and there is spots everywhere. DH said he was just about to get new ABU's anyways so its no big deal... but is there any way to remove these stains? I figure they cant be saved since i dried them

Always remember that like disolves like.

The best thing I have found for getting ink out of clothing is alcohol. Try spraying some pump type hairspray (yes hairspray, the cheaper the better) on it and working it with a soft toothbrush or other brush. Rinse frequently and repeat. The alcohol in the hairspray will actually dissolve the ink that isn't "set" in the fabric.

I have used this technique to get ink off of shirts and ties even after the stains had been dried.

As the person that does the laundry in our home...

I would not get stressed over the pockets. I've made it very clear to my wife that if something goes in the wash from her uniforms, it isn't my fault. I wash her uniforms separate from any other laundry. She does a pretty good job... Mostly I've washed the occasional USB drive... LOL
