Washed my BDUs.
Somehow, a pen got into the mix.
Arms streaked with ink now.
Any idea how to get it off?
If that doesn't work, you could always try to use a laundry marker to blend in the ink so it looks like another black blob. Might work for a field uniform, but I wouldn't want to be in formation and hear the PSG or 1SG say "Open ranks, March" while wearing them.
It's a 10" long, straight down as my arm hangs. About 1/2" wide.
We're overdue for open ranks.
A friend advised me to use hairspray. It did a decent job, but took a few cans. Anyone other than USAF isn't likely to have hairstarch hanging around.
MEK/leather luster stripper did a much better job.
Acetone/nail polish stripper was also recommended, but the PX is closed.
