Getting ink out of dryer

Anyone have a good solution to getting ink out of a dryer?
Husband left a pen in his pants pocket and it exploded all over the dryer. 
Some google searching led me to using rubbing alcohol - but nothing seemed to be super effective. Any tips?

Re: Getting ink out of dryer

  • We had the same thing happen a while ago (also had it happen with gum! ugh) We tried a bunch of different things and now DH and I are sitting her trying to remember what actually worked lol...I'm pretty sure it was a combo of goo gone, magic erasers and a scouring sponge...it was ALOT of work and we never ended up getting all of it out. I ran some old light colored towells in there a couple times to make sure what was left didn't rub off before I put any clothes in and we haven't had any trouble with it since then.

  • Thanks! We ended up wiping the dryer out with rubbing alcohol, then running bleach soaked rags through it. It took almost all of the ink out!  We ran some plain towels through a few times just to make sure and there was no more ink coming off. Thank goodness!
