My SO had a pen explode in his pocked and it is all over his chino trousers. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the ink stain I have already tried sard wonder soap (bar) Ozkleen prewash spray and soaking in Vanish Napisan. Whilst I have got it to lighten it has not removed the stain.

  • Spray hair spray on it and then blot with a damp cloth.

  • Would love to know if you had success with removing the stain after some of these suggestions.

  • Might be time to visit a dry cleaner if you have already tried other options without success?

  • A product called Orange Power!made from orange oil smells great and only need a small amount can tackle many stains like ink!

  • Do napisan again sometimes it just takes a few goes if it’s lightening it its working.

  • Try using an antibacterial hand wash on the stain – I’ve heard this works, although I’ve never tried it myself.

  • My suggestion was going to be napisan. Have you tried to mix the napisan as a paste and rubbing it in to the stain? Let it sit for 5 or so minutes and then was. It may take a few attempts to get it out
