Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
My husband did a load of laundry and left a Bic ink pen in a pocket. After drying, there was ink all over the drum and the baffles. He tried to clean up and cover up the deed with Soft Scrub with bleach. Luckily I caught it before he scrubbed with the abrasive cleanser and carefully diluted it with water and cleaned it out, though unforrtunately I was gassed with the chlorine fumes in the process. Other than replacing the drum for about $250, is there a product or process that will remove the ink without damaging the enamel of the drum interior and the vinyl baffles? (A damp rag seems to smear the ink on the baffles, but not remove it, and has no effect on the enamel drum interior.) Thanks so much for your help and advice!
Try something alcohol based - cheap gin for example or barbecue stsrter

Tips for a great answer:

Turn the dryer off and remove any laundry from inside the drum.
Unplug the dryer.
Dampen a paper towel with rubbing alcohol.
Scrub the ink stain with the dampened towel. Repeat, if necessary, with a fresh towel dampened with rubbing alcohol, to remove all the ink.
Wipe the area with a cloth dampened with water, to remove any alcohol residue.
Thanks for choosing Fixya!
