Question about Roper REX4634KQ Electric Dryer
An ink pen exploded in the dryer....all the white clothes are stained,and the inside drum of the dryer.Is there a solution or trick to removing ink from the dryer drum?..p.s. there's a lot of ink..ugh!
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.

Peanut butter 2 tablespoons and 3 tablespoons baking soda. Ink is made of earth elements now. It will take some elbow grease but its cheap and safe.

You can use any paint thinner to remove the ink. if ordinary paint thinner would not work, you can try acrylic thinner or acetone would be best but expensive.

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.
