Help! My DH did the washing over the weekend, and he accidentally left a pen in one of the pockets, and now my dryer is covered in blue ink. Is there any way to removing this? Any tips would be a huge help. Thanks

Ask your question

  • never heard of this happening before not leaving pen in pocket
    but ink in dryer so thought about it wet rags or cloths with bleach on them too
    Is an idea to try then spin them around and see if thy ink absorb for you
    Let me know as just an idea,so would if works it might help others clear



  • Hi just google “get out ink from pen in clothes dryer.” wikihow has 4 ways with pictures and is very helpful. Good luck.



  • Hey try using color catcher sheets. its really helpful.



  • Hairspray on a cloth or wd-40, works on clothing may work on the dryer



  • Oh dear. Its easy to do, but such a mess to clean up. Contacting the manufacturer might help because I imagine running the dryer will warm and melt the ink down again and dirty your clothes. Good luck.



  • Eucalyptus oil on a rag should remove the ink & then wipe with a clean damp cloth.
