Bam! Ink attack. But hey, no need to toss your clothes into the bin just yet. We're unleashing the ultimate secrets to vanquish ink stains from your cloths with these 6 tips on how to get ink out of clothing.


1. Superhero Speed

In the battle against ink, timing is your trusty sidekick. As soon as the ink strikes, don your invisible cape and blot, blot, blot! Grab a paper towel, tissue, or any clean cloth and gently dab the stain. No rubbing allowed – we're not spreading the mess!


2. Corn Starch And Vinegar

Grab corn starch, vinegar, a small spoon and a small bowl. Mix 3 parts corn starch and 2 parts vinegar in your bowl. Apply the paste to the ink stain and wait for it to dry. Then wash in hot water.


3. Dish Soap Isn't Just For Dishes

Squirt some dish soap onto the ink stain and gently massage it in. Leave it for a few minutes, then rinse with cold water.


4. Use The Leftover Milk

Believe it or not, milk isn't just for cereal! Grab some milk and soak the stained area overnight. The milk solids will push the ink stain out while it soaks. Wash the item of clothing as recommended the next day.


5. Encore, Encore!

Not every ink stain bows down on the first try. If it's still putting up a fight, go in for a second round. Patience and persistence, dear stain warrior!


6. SOS: Dry Cleaners

When all seems lost, and you're dealing with a fancy fabric, don't hesitate to call in the dry cleaners. They're armed with expert skills and ink-banishing spells.


To sum it all up, ink stains might think they're slick, but we've got the upper hand. With quick action, a dash of corn starch sorcery, and the resilience to repeat, you've got ink stains on the ropes.
