It can be a real challenge to remove an ink stain from clothing, especially if the stain has dried. Of course, you can use commercial products to try removing the ink stain but this is often much more expensive and hazardous than using household items, which properly used can be just as effective as store-bought products. Here are two excellent methods of removing dried ink stains from clothing. There is no matter which one you will use, as they both work equally well.
- Soak a cleaning cloth with rubbing alcohol and gently blot the ink stain. Let the alcohol sit on the clothing for a minute or two, then run the garment through the washing machine with other clothes on regular washing cycle. Make sure that the ink stain is completely removed before putting the clothing in the dryer, as recommended by cleaners Collier’s Wood. If not, repeat the process until the stain is gone.
- White soap is an alternative solution to the rubbing alcohol. Simply wet the stained area thoroughly with water and rub a bar of soap on the stain. Let the soap work on the ink for about 5 minutes, and then wash the stained clothing with other clothes as usual. Examine the affected area for any remaining ink before putting the garment in the dryer. Repeat the process if the ink stain has not been completely removed.
If you cannot remove the ink stain on your own, consider consulting cleaners Collier’s Wood. They would be able to give you some good tips that can help you to remove the dried ink stain from the stained piece of clothing.
