Inka Dinka Doo

May 23, 2008

During a faculty meeting yesterday, I was using a pen to scratch the maddening itch I’ve been living with for several days now. I didn’t even realize I was doing it until I happened to look down. Naturally, the pen wasn’t capped. My jeans are ruined (and they’re my favorite pair, of course).

Can I scream now?

    Use rubbing alcohol, it will take out ink.

    Try hairspray. You may have to do it a couple of times but it should take the ink out. Good Luck!

    Start a new fashion fad!

  4. Oy vey! You could go all 60s and put appliques over the inkstains… well, maybe not.

  5. I heard hairstray works too. and maybe the appliques would look cute or even some embroidery

    I think after a few washings the ink will disappear like disappearing ink is supposed to do. I don’t know what I meant by that. But I have observed that today’s laundry soap seems to work much better than in years past. Clothes don’t seemed to hold stains like they used to. Please send a picture of your jeans after the ink has faded. Thank you and have a nice day!!

    I tried the rubbing alcohol and hairspray recommendations, and the jeans are now in the wash. I’ll let you know if the ink stains came out. However, I have to say that Alvin’s suggestion is my favorite. Priceless!

    I did something similar once to a white sweatshirt – got a mark on the sleeve. I took indelible ink marker and drew flowers around the mark, to match the flowers on the front, and no one every was the wiser.
