Biro ballpoint pen ink can be removed with rubbing alcohol. Blot stains from outside toward middle with white rag and alcohol. Do not rub. Continue to blot until all ink is removed. Then, wash as usual. If eucalyptus oil has left a stain, pretreat stains with heavy-duty liquid laundry detergent and let set. Then, wash in hottest water appropriate for fabric and detergent. Perfume and hairspray contain alcohol, but they also contain other ingredients that can compound laundry problems.
