Product History

Amodex was originally formulated in 1958 to remove inks, dye and other troublesome stains from hands. Lab tests and customer feedback indicated that Amodex Hand Cleaner was equally effective removing stains from fabrics.

In the early 70’s, Amodex Hand Cleaner became Amodex Stain Remover for Hands & Fabrics. The range of uses expanded to include everyday household stains such as food (mustard, ketchup, wine, tomato sauce, salad dressing, etc.) blood, grease, grass and more.

Recognized in the early 90’s as the world’s stain remover for all inks including permanent and whiteboard marker such as Sharpie® and Marks-a-Lot® and Expo®, the product was renamed Amodex Ink & Stain Remover. Its unique cream formula is non-toxic and safe to use on fabrics, upholstery, carpeting, and even skin. Amodex removes that impossible Georgia clay, familiar to those of you living in the south, stains from antique linen, machine oil, baby formula and liquid medicine from children’s clothes, permanent marker from CD’s and DVD’s and more..


AMODEX works on all types of ink including ballpoint, felt tip, fountain pen, stamp pad, and even permanent and whiteboard marker! The world’s leading ink manufacturers including AT Cross, Avery Dennison, BIC, Mont Blanc, Parker, Pilot, Sanford, Tombow, Waterman and others lab tested Amodex and recommend it to remove their ink marks..

Today, we are proud to be recognized by America’s leading consumer magazine as a “must have in the home” and Rated #1 for removing ink stains.
