Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is Kelly and I look forward to helping you! The ink spots are going to be very hard to remove. They will usually only fade without using some very strong solvents, like Goof Off. However, these solvents are very flammable and are not recommended. An automotive rubbing compound is both odor free and non flammable and does a good job in removing the stains. Be sure to clean well after use and you should be in good shape!
