The successful removal of ink stains differs from case to case because of the many types of fabrics, colours, inks and time elapsed before stain removal. We cannot guarantee stain removal since many variables can be involved. Testing first is always recommended as well as following both the stain remover and clothing manufacturer's instructions. Following these steps should result in partial or complete removal. General Rules:
Treat stains as soon as possible. Fresh stains can be removed more easily than old ones.
Check manufacturer's labels as to fabric content and any special instructions.
Always test stain removal solution first on a hidden part of the article or on swatch of fabric taken from seam allowance to insure no colour loss or damage will occur.
Where possible, lay stained article face down on paper towels or clean white cloth and apply stain removal solution to underside of stain so that stain can be removed from the surface instead of pushing it through the fabric. Replace towels or cloth as they absorb stain to prevent stain transfer.
If enlisting the aid of a professional laundry or dry cleaner, be sure to indicate what the stain is and the type of fabric. Do not iron stained garments or put in dryer as this may set stain.

Before using the marker for the first time:
With marker in tip up position and cap off, depress tip with finger. This will relieve any pressure.
Recap. Shake well to mix paint.
Take cap off. Depress point several times on surface to saturate tip with paint.
Repeat as necessary to keep paint flowing.

A marker can be classified as a permanent marker if it:
Adheres to most surfaces and/or is water resistant.
Uses dyes or pigments
The dyes or pigments used, which give the ink colour (colourants), determine how well a marking will resist fading and the combination of ingredients used in the ink formulation gives the ink permanent properties.
