There are several things to try but for all the dryer should be unplugged or the breaker tripped. The mildest way is dishwashing liquid and a wet cloth. It will take a lot of rubbing. The other methods use more harsh treatment. Rubbing alcohol or nail polish which is acetone but rub off any residue and for all these you should run a load of old clothes or rags to help remove any residue. You will find that even if you don't completely remove the ink it will disappear over time. Just a suggestion but maybe have your husband do the rubbing? LOL!
