    Ink Stain Removal

    It happens to us all, an ink pen in the pocket, a careless swipe across a sleeve, leakages. How do you remove ink stains?

     Use old hairspray let it soak in for 30 minutes and spray again then wait 15 mintues spray on some stain remover then its all down when you laundry it the matter of the soaking on the threads of the clothes the fibers are sometimes need a little soaking thats it right there I had a cotten white blouse cindy taught me how to remove it that way and it works no throwing of the blouse away by the way the white top always got ink on it from the pens ...Specially if its blank or blue ink so my top is about 4 years old it does help when my sister worked at a laundry/drycleaning she was the remover of the spots plus she was a supervisor.

    Oh rubbing alco. does the same thing actually its cheaper that way then it is with hairspray forgot to put this in.

    The water soluble hair spray (read: the cheap brands) work better than the higher priced ones, that have more lacquer in them.

     I think you can clean the ink stain by  bleaching powder. But you need to be sure  to let the other place of your cloth far from the water that contain the  bleaching powder.
