Yesterday I had what could have been a traumatic experience. I was filling a new Diplomat pen (reviews soon!) with J. Herbin ink and I dripped some on my favorite jeans! I quickly washed the spots in the sink with some cool water and Ivory soap. I was optimistic the ink would wash about because Herbin inks are usually very water soluble.
The result was a success! I let the jeans dry overnight and the ink spots are gone! With another ink brand, my favorite jeans could have been ruined forever, but J. Herbin’s gentle nature (and Ivory soap) saved the day!
