Poking around the Pelikan website, I learned of the Pelikan Stain Doctor. Pelikan makes a variety of ink products (pens, typewritters, etc.). This provides recommendations on how to remove stains caused by various types of ink, and the likelihood for success. I wish more ink brands had such information.
One of my rules for not losing pens is to have one to loan. The office supply cabinet is a good source for that.
My wife texted me while dropping off my daughter. She heard my daughter say to a friend, “That’s my crazy mom. she’s not as crazy as my dad, but they’re both pretty silly.”
