Salt to Remove Ink Stains

Salt works impressively on ink stains on carpet. If the ink is still wet immediately cover it with salt. Allow the salt to sit overnight then vacuum the area. The salt will absorb the ink. If the ink is already dry, wet it thoroughly before trying the salt treatment. Salt also works on other stains like Kool-Aid or juice.

I have always used hairspray on ink stains and it's always worked. Spray it freely, let it sit for a bit & then wash. Taa daa!

I'd never heard of this, but it's something to try. The best part? Salt is plentiful and very inexpensive.
