Ink in Dryer

I placed a load of cloths into my dryer and unfortunately a pen was in one of my pockets. Now ink is stained all over the inside of my dryer. I was hoping someone could provide me with a few suggestions as to how I should go about removing the ink stain. Thanks

Regular rubbing alcohol dissolves ink from common ball point pens. This works on clothing as well.

The best thing i have found to remove dried ink on metal surfaces is to use nail varnish remover (don't tell the wife your pinching it) it should work well and is fairly inexpensive

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!

Why does my washing comes out with stains on it.... they weren't there when it went into the wash...


yes sometimes ink pens can be washed when we are not aware it was in someones pocket. I use straight ammonia and a cloth to clean my washing machine drum a couple times a year because these things have happened to me before. The ammonia will cut the grime and pen stains out of the drum. Then take a squirt bottle and fill it with white vinegar and squirt all around inside the drum of the machine. Run a wash without any clothes with the hottest water to clean the drum and clear out the stains. Do this to the dryer also and clean out the filters. Take the dispensers out from the washing machine and clean those too and your cleaning is done for a while. Apparently the ink has been in the drum of your washing machine and putting the color into your clothes. You can bleach out the white clothes that turned blue. Use the stain remover for colored clothes. Hope this will help you.

Hairspray is an excellent solution to the ballpoint pen ink problem. Buy the cheapest you can find and spray, let the spray sit on the spots for a few seconds and wipe with a paper towel. Keep doing this until the spot is removed. This also works on fabrics as well. As a former teacher, my red grading pen ruined several of my white shirts. I used my husband's $1.29 can of hairspray and saved over $100 in garments. He was pretty angry about my using all his hairspray but when I pointed out the money saved by not having to purchase new blouses, he relented. I keep a can of hairspray in my laundry room at all times.

An ink pen accidentally got in with the clothes we were drying. So now ink stains spewed around the drier. Anything that can be done to clean the mess up?


Hello. I can help you. This is what I recommend - To remove ink stains from your clothes dryer, place 2 cups of bleach in a bucket, then fill the busket halfway with water. Take some old towels and soak up the liquid in the bucket. You don`t want the towels to be dripping wet, just damp. Place them directly into the dryer to remove the ink and run an entire cycle. Repeat if necessary. When you feel you have removed the ink sufficiently, place an old dry towel in the dryer to make sure that you removed all of the ink. Generally it takes about an hour to remove all of the ink.

Ink pen broke in dryer


AVON Skin So Soft works on some inks. Use a white cloth and when you stop getting ink on the cloth it will be ok. Wash and dry a load of not so good towels and rags, old clothes to test for residue before using with the good clothes. Some staining may remain permanently in the drum.

Stain in dryer


This will work. Soak white towel or other white fabric in bleach water, then slightly wring them out, leaving very wet. Then put them in dryer, on low or fluff cycle. Run for 60 minutes or more. This should rub off all the ink in the dryer. You may have to repeat if you have alot of ink. I have done this a few times and it has always work, good luck.

I forgot to empty pocket. a ball point pen exploded and i have ink all over the inside of my dryer. I have not found anything to remove it. Any suggestions?


Try aerosol hair spray. It removes dried ink from clothes, may also work for your dryer. If not, try paint thinner or mineral spirits, available at any hardware store.
