My son came home with a chefs jacket someone had left a biro in with the jackets when washing them. I used this technique and it turned it a lighter colour but did not remove.

Works perfectly! Sprayed a bit of TresEmme Hairspray onto a clothing label covered in biro ink, rubbed with a few cotton buds and viola! The ink is gone!

Great tip.

WORKS! Comments By: Dianne on 2008-01-11
My Daughter had biro on her very very expensive cream hooded top,with the hairspray you have to spray firmly through the biro marks,until it is gone,using quite a lot of the hairspray,the biro will go darker initially,which is a bit scary and then it dissapears as if by magic!! Fabulous tip

Amazing. It worked amazingly on my granchild's new polo fleece jacket. Tried milk first but did nothing. The hairspray worked a treat. Thank you
