Ok I shouldn't have a cream T-shirt - its a style thing...but how do I get blue ink off, without stretching or colour change?

try hairspray, it's pretty good with ink from pens

thanks I have some somewhere in dds room from dressing up in a play.

Do you put it on before you wash it?

Would just like to add a vote for Stain Devils - they really are amazing. You buy different small bottles, numbered according to the particular stain and there is one for biro (and a different one for felt-tip, lol). The special one for blood was a god-send when dds 1 and 2 had terrible nosebleeds (for years...)

Yes hairsprayis really good. Rinse under cold tap after hairspary. I would repeat a few times then wash as normal.
