Although pencils are primarily used on paper, it's not that surprising to find occasional pencil stains on your laundry. What's much more surprising is how easily pencil stains can be to remove.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Erase pencil stains.

    Use a pencil eraser on the stained area on your laundry. Often a few gentle passes with an eraser is enough to remove the marks from clothing.

  2. Apply a stain stick, gel, or remover to the pencil stain.

    Use your preferred stain remover and apply it to the stained area. Be sure to follow the instructions for the stain remover.

  3. Wash normally.

    Wash the clothing normally using the correct temperature setting for your fabric. Be sure to repeat the above steps if the stain remains before finally drying the stain free clothing.
