    i got my clothes back from the cleaners and the pink ink stains are still there. I'm gonna take them to a place in montreal and see if they can do sometihing but i really think they're there to stay since i noticed this after ironing the pants and probably setting the stain in the process...

    The pants are linen. The best way i can describe them is they're beige with some white threads going through although they're predominantly beige threads. Anyway.. since linen has an imperfect look to it and i have extra fabric to experiment on, i was thinking i could maybe buy a cloth dye and use a very fine paint brush to apply the dye to the pink ink stains (there's one very faint smudge and a couple of small spots). I figure there's no harm in trying if nothing else works. Even a slightly different beige would probably be almost invisible and anythign is better than pink.

    I JUST got these pants this year and only now has it become nice enough to wear them so I'm fuming right now since they really weren't cheap either =/

    I don't iknow if it's what you're looking for, but RIT DYE sold at the grocery store could work.
