Solve Felt Tip Pen Stains At Home

We’ll admit it. Shout® products aren’t always the answer, but when they aren’t, we’ll always tell you what is.

Step 1.

Check the label. Make sure your garment is colorfast and washable and says nothing about being “dry-clean only.” If the item meets both of those requirements, you’re ready for Step 2.

Step 2.

Pre-treat the stain with a mixture of detergent and a few drops of ammonia. Or try rubbing alcohol with a clean, absorbent backing such as a white paper towel.

Step 3.

Have patience. Let either approach sit for 10 minutes before rinsing out.

Step 4.

Wash your stained clothing in the warmest water your item recommends.

Shout® Pro Tip. Some felt tip inks are permanent. It’s a sad side of the stain-solving business. If you performed all the steps above, you’ve done all you can.
