Fountain pen is permanent, but not the stain it makes. Spots can come from water-based ink or oil-based ink, some are easier to remove, others are more difficult. Regardless of where you want to remove the ink, you need a good solvent, such as alcohol, hair spray, disinfection liquid and a trusted Triumf detergent. To deal with stubborn ink stains, follow the steps below.
1. Color durability test
Apply solvent such as alcohol, hair spray or disinfectant in the invisible area of clothes and leave it for 1-3 minutes. Check with a paper towel if the color of the fabric does not go to the towel, if it does, do not go continue cleaning.
2. Removing excess
Wipe off any excess ink with a paper towel. Place a paper towel under the stain, then pour the solvent straight onto the stain. Rinse with cold water.
Apply Triumf Color Protection directly on the stain. Use a soft brush or gently wipe the fabric to distribute the detergent in the fibers of clothes and leave it for 5-10 minutes.
Pour the right amount of detergent into the cap and then into the washing machine's dispenser.
5. Laundry loading
Without rinsing the detergent, put the laundry in the drum along with other things. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your laundry extra cleaning power.
Wash in the normal cycle at the highest allowable temperature. Always check the washing instructions on the fabric label.
7. Taking the washing out of the washing machine
At the end of the washing cycle, take clothes out from the drum as soon as possible. If the ink stain does not disappear after washing, repeat the previous steps before putting into the dryer, as drying will fix the stain.
