Big Oops.

Buttons were buttoned. Collars turned up. Zippers zipped. Pants pockets empty.

It was a load of laundry, B's dress shirts mixed with the big boys' school shirts, mixed with other clothes and six white napkins from breakfast. . .

And there was one ink pen in one pocket of one shirt that I didn't see.

The dryer is now striped black inside and the entire load of laundry sports black smudges.

My first thought: "We don't have money to fix this."

My second: "It will be okay. He promised."

But is there any way to fix this big oops?

Sounds like you should do some tie dying :)

Try Goo Gone on the ink. If that doesn't work, try Krud Kutter (find it at Home Depot). And if that doesn't work, try Biz. Soak it overnight.

I heard rubbing alcohol works too. Stephanie Dean used it to get ink out of her couch (her 3-year-old got creative that day). She said it all came out, and you can't even tell it was there.

I just wonder if the heat from the dryer will have already set the stains. The Goo Gone didn't work, but I'll try something else tomorrow.

Good luck! Hopefully something works. Sorry--I don't have any ideas...

i agree w/ the rubbing alcohol. also aqua net hair spray...has alcohol plus the aerosol spray seems to help w/ lifting ink. but...the heat of the dryer may have set the stains....good luck! Darcy
