An ink pin made it through our washer and into our dryer thus staining our clothes and the inside of our dryer. We've tried warm water, hairspray and fingernail polish remover with no luck. How can we get the stains removed from the dryer?

Hi brianwolters,

W/O suggesting something that might damage the Finish on the dryer/washer, I'd ctc. the mfgr. A possible non-caustic solution is Skin So Soft. (Use a cotton swab.)

My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: I'd be curious if it works, or what the mfgr. suggests. I could always use a new 'solution' ...

PPS: God Bless America!

No experience with ink but found a cleaner in Florida last year which is unbelievable. It's not available here in Canada but if my memory serves me correct it's called something like "Goo goo" or "Goop". Perhaps somebody else can give you the right name after my memory jogger! It even removes Latex paint that has been dry for years - that's what I used it for. Good luck.

If you want something that should get ink out and not harm the dryer, go to and order a bottle of the SNAP Heavy Duty Concentrate from the 'Home Care store' (costs $9.50) and can be used for carpet cleaner (I use it at home and my apartments) and laundry pre-wash. I've seen it even take permanent marker out of clothes! (and ink!).
