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.

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

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.

Somehow a ball point pen went into the dryer. I now have ink on the inside of the drum. What can I do to get the ink off the drum. It should be noted that the dryer weny through a complete cycle before...


You may have to experiment with solvents to find one that will remove the bulk of the ink. Start with rubbing alcohol, then try a mineral spirits (paint thinner) or WD-40 oil, and finally some acetone. Make sure there are no sparks or fire nearby while using these solvents. Be sure to clean the areas with a spray cleaner after any success to remove a lingering smell. You may have some permanent stain left that will just have to wear off, but shouldn't affect your clothes. Hope this helps!

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.

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.
