It can be almost impossible to remove an ink stain from clothes when a ballpoint pen explodes. Here's a resourceful way to treat the stain and make your clothes look as good as new: Cover the stain in hand sanitizer. Clear, gel-based hand sanitizers are loaded with alcohol, which helps lift stains from the fibers of clothes. Saturating the area makes it easy for the stain to be removed when washed. Simply allow the hand sanitizer to saturate the material for at least 10 minutes before washing.
