A pen exploded in the dryer and I cannot remove the ink from inside the drum.


Hello 5.....
  1. Turn the dryer off and remove any laundry from inside the drum.

  2. Unplug the dryer.

  3. Dampen a paper towel with rubbing alcohol.

  4. Scrub the ink stain with the dampened towel. Repeat, if necessary, with a fresh towel dampened with rubbing alcohol, to remove all the ink.

  5. Wipe the area with a cloth dampened with water, to remove any alcohol residue.

  6. If the stain persists, soak a white rag with rubbing alcohol or hairspray and scrub the stain. It may take repeated applications to dissolve the ink. Joe


Thanks for choosing Fixya!

ink in the dryer


Rubbing alcohol will work to remove most of it if you use alot of elbow grease.

What I found worked the best and quickest was a Mr Clean Magic Eraser wetted acetone nail polish remover. Leave the dryer door open to let it air dry, then put a couple of white towels soaked in bleach water and run the dryer on a non-heat cycle to remove any remaining smudges.

To be paranoid, I then ran the same towels through the washer and dryed them on high heat to make sure there was no ink I missed that might ruin any further clothes.
