Believe it or not, the most effective ink remover is non-aerosole hairspray. Simply spray it on the stain let it set for a minute or two and wash with your regular wash.

I bought a beautiful, almost new pair of cream colored dress pants from the thrift store with an ink stain on one leg. That's all I did (how my Mom took care of ink stains!) and they came out beautifully.

Try using milk to soak the garment in for a couple of hours you might have to do this twice but it really worked on my grandsons white sports shirt. Let us know how you go on. Helen xxx

Try rubbing alcohol.

Put something absorbent (old towel) under the stain, pour on a little alcohol and blot with a clean cloth.

Since the alcohol dries quickly, you may need to repeat a few times.

I used it to remove an ink stain from clothing that was dried in the dryer with an exploding pen!
