Out, Damned Spot!05/11/2014
This is probably the one and only time I will get to use a quote from Macbeth in a title. In this case it’s about ink and how to remove it.
A few days ago, my son got ink on a t-shirt, but I didn’t find out until it had gone through a wash and dry cycle. A couple of drops of Amodex, three seconds of scrubbing with the included brush, another trip through the washer and dryer and presto, the shirt was restored.
Ink on my fingers is not a big issue. I consider it an occupational hazard, but ink on clothing is another matter. I’ve used Folex successfully to remove ink and a lot of other stains, especially non-oil food ones. It even does a good job at removing chocolate and coffee depending on how long the stain has set. Folex handled a rather large, dried ink spot on off-white carpet last year. Good stuff, indeed.
Amodex has never failed me and it is a convenient size. There is a bottle of it next to my desk stashed amongst pens, inks and pads of paper and all get along just fine.
What do you use to clean ink stains?
