When I was in 8th grade, I had a ball point pen “explode” on my clothes. My teacher shipped me to the science teacher noting, “maybe he’ll have something to get that out.”
You will never guess what he gave me.
He saturated the ink spots and told me to leave them until the garment wash washed.
I couldn’t believe it worked. Well, it wasn’t perfect, but better than anything else my mom had ever tried. ( I was a pen chewer.)
Hurray for science!.
