I got printer ink on my ironing board cover. Does this mean it's history or is there some way to remove it? I tried alcohol, hair spray and dawn with no luck Thanks

1.Dab the stain with a clean, damp towel or sponge until no more ink will lift from the affected area.
2.Let the stain air dry.
3.Spray the stain with hairspray or dab with alcohol.
4.Put the stained fabric between two paper towels.
5.Blot the back side of the stained fabric. This will force the stain out of the fabric and into the other paper towel.
6.As you continue to press, the stain will transfer to the other paper towel. Move the paper towel so the clean segment of the towel lifts the stain. Continue pressing and moving the paper towel so the stain does not re-transfer back into the fabric after you’ve gotten it into the towel. If you need to use a new paper towel, do so. When the stain is completely lifted, you are done.

Going to try that. It's already dried as didn't see this until today, so may be too late. Thanks!

You can google how to remove printer ink after it is dried... there was the above but also another bit if this didn't apply to your situation... when I think about the carpet around our big office printer and the spots of toner as we called it.... that stuff likely was never going to come out of the carpet...

When I googled dried on ink one of things mentioned was Clorox. The cover is blue but after trying everything else, decided who cares and will replace if necessary:) Squirted it with Clorox cleanup, left it for a little while and it came out. Didn't even remove the color. Washed in Tide and it's set to use again.

I have oversized ironing board and the covers are twill coloured neutral ivory - I bleach it every time I wash it but next time I wont leave it in the dryer until bone dry I will take it out damp and let it finish drying on the ironing board for better fit....

I don't put mine in the dryer at all...just it put back on the board right out of the washing machine. I'm so glad to know you got the printer ink out.

Me too, Barbara I always set the used cartridge on a plastic bag except for this time. Just set it on a piece of printer paper and it went right through. Learned my lesson:)

I put everything in the dryer for at least 10 minutes... that at least gets the wrinkles out and starts the drying process I have lace curtains in my breakfast room and I dried them - so next time I do the windows and curtains I will hang the curtains out of the wash.... that is what I do with my lace table cloth put it on the glass topped table and air dry. If you are in a high humidity area put your ironing board out in the sun to dry - to prevent rust and mold

Any sheer curtains I've ever had (right now living and dining rooms) get washed on delicate , hung up right from the washer, dry on the windows. Always perfect and saves extra steps:)
