Ballpoint Ink Stain Removal

We recently had a customer ask this question.

Q. Should I use hairspray to remove a ballpoint ink stain?

A. Hairspray and water can remove ballpoint ink, but you may be trading one problem for another. That’s because hairspray could contain alcohol and oils such as resins and lanolin. The alcohol in the hairspray can cause color damage especially on silk; likewise, oils and other ingredients could lead to additional stains.

Crest Cleaners can remove the ink stain in most cases and return your garment in a like new condition!
