I just had to write.
My wife left an ink pen in her pants pocket and it exploded
in the dryer--lots of colors, two white dress shirts,
and sensitive clothing where the manufacturer recommends
ONLY cold water hand washing. I tried almost everything:
hair spray, rubbing alcohol, detergent stain remover,
and with limited success, nail polish remover for several
hours--only limited success on a couple of garments with
the nail polish.
On your website, I came
across the "biz boil" idea but thought that was crazy.
Since nothing else worked, I tried the "boil" idea before
throwing the clothes away. I was skittish so I put the
whites, darks and colors in separately and only for about
10 minutes instead of 45. AMAZING!! No matter what the
material and how bad the stain--the
ink just DISAPPEARED !!
Since it had better effect
than the acetone-based nail polish I can only assume that
some sort of chemical reaction between the Biz and boiling
water occurs to break the chemical ink bonds. The only
caution I would add is that a little amount of ink leached
from a pair of nylon shorts but putting a new solution
together with my white towel eliminated the overall red
stain as well. And I would keep whites, colors and darks
in separate solutions. However, you should also know that
my white dress shirt with long stained "ring
around the collar" was completely removed along
with the ink!
This idea delivered ...
HEY!! Here's another
letter we received for a "happy stain remover"
Problem: yesterday I was painting my dogs
nails red (really) and she moved her paw and I got
red nail polish stains on a favorite new shirt
Solution: I followed the procedures for
the ''biz boil'' on your website and the stains came completely
out within 10 minutes!!! it was absolutely amazing, I
couldn't believe it.
Gratitude: to you and yours for the most
helpful solution! I am so happy; nothing else worked,
and I tried several different remedies that didn't even
make any difference. This is going to become a family
Thank you so much!
AND another one
WOW! I had a pen explode in the dryer and ruin 5 pairs
of pants, two
athletic shorts and a sweater. I got on GOOGLE and typed
in "ink stains
in dryer" and up popped your page on Difficult Clothing
Stains. I tried
the Biz Boil, not EVER thinking it would work and IT DID!
I didn't even
have to keep the clothes in for 10 minutes and the stains
(The house smells good too, kind of humid and clean and
Thanks a million times over for your helpful hint...you
saved me about
$200.00 in new clothes.
