Remove Ink Pen Stains from Clothing. Don’t throw that expensive new top out just because it’s got an ink stain, remove it quick and easy with this Haley’s Hint.

Ink pen stains can be tricky to remove from clothing, but with the right steps and ingredients, you can successfully tackle this problem. Try following these effective tips to remove ink pen stains from your clothes:

1. Act quickly: The faster you act, the easier it will be to remove the stain. As soon as you notice the ink pen stain, try to remove it promptly.

2. Blot the stain: Begin by gently blotting the stain with a clean cloth or paper towel. Be careful not to rub the stain, as it can cause the ink to spread and make the situation worse.

3. Test the fabric: Before applying any stain-removing solution, test it on a small, inconspicuous area of the fabric to ensure it doesn’t cause any damage or discoloration. 4

. Use rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer: These two common household items can be effective in removing ink stains. Dampen a clean cloth or cotton ball with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer and gently blot the stain. As you blot, you should start to see the ink transferring onto the cloth. Keep moving to clean areas of the cloth to prevent reapplying the ink to the garment.

5. Rinse and launder: After you have successfully removed the ink stain, rinse the affected area with water to remove any residue from the cleaning solution. Then, launder the clothing as you normally would, following the instructions on the garment’s care label.

6. Repeat if necessary: If the stain persists after the first attempt, repeat the process until the stain is fully removed. It may take a few tries, especially for stubborn ink pen stains.

7. Try alternative methods: If rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer doesn’t work, you can also try other methods such as using a mixture of vinegar and dishwashing detergent, or using hairspray. These methods may vary in effectiveness depending on the fabric, so always test on a small area first. Remember, it’s essential to act quickly and give the stained clothing proper care to increase the chances of successful stain removal.
