    What do you use to get ink out of clothes? I heard that hairspray might take it out but haven't tried it yet.

    For ball point pen I've always used lighter fluild. Be careful - you only need a little on a soft cloth.

    Hair spray or WD 40 sometimes works...but put it on a cloth and dab it at the ink.

    WD 40 and then wash with Borax along with your regular detergent.

    Thanks I tried the hairspray. I guess I didn't leave it on long before I washed it. It got almost all of it out. There is just a little spot left.
