To remove Ink from Fabric
Next time an out-of-control pen wreaks havoc on your clothes or furniture and you don't have a spot remover on hand, try a little hairspray. 

After some googling I discovered that you don't need expensive chemicals—good old-fashioned hairspray will do the trick PERFECTLY! 

Just spray the hairspray directly onto the ink, wait 30 seconds and then simply wipe the ink away with a damp cloth. 
You can actually see the ink coming to the surface! It works on all fabric for all types of ink, so next time your pen leaks in your shirt pocket, don't bin the shirt, just use hairspray to remove it. It doesn't even matter if the ink has dried, and you can use the cheapest of cheap hairsprays too. Thumbs Up

I've had the same can of hairspray in my laundry cabinet for the last 25 years or so for that very reason...just in case. A few years ago, I found that rubbing alcohol works as well.
