My Laundry Question

How do I get ink out of Dryer and cloths

Share a Little Background Info

My son left a gel type pen in his pants pocket. It went through the washer fine but It exploded in the dryer. It got on his beige pants and light blue shirt and all over the inside of the dryer. The pants have a large stain about the size of a nickel near the pocket. The shirt has small spots all over.

Lessons Learned

  • I sprayed the inside of the dryer with Spray and Wash then put wet towels in the dryer. It took a lot of it out but not all.
