Somehow you've done it again and there is a massive ink stain on your favourite blouse or the carpet? Don't worry, Ohmymag will show you how you can easily get rid of ink stains using common household items.
How To Remove Ink Stains
1. Use milk and cornstarch: Mix milk and cornstarch then apply it directly on the carpet stain. Let it dry for a few hours then wipe the residue off and vacuum if needed.
2. Use milk only: Soak the affected spot with milk overnight and throw it in the washer the next day. This trick should remove the stain straightaway.
3. Use salt: If the stain is still wet then add salt and dab it with a wet piece of cloth. Repeat this process if the stain hasn't disappeared.
4. Use cream of tartar and lemon juice: Mix 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Let the paste soak for about 4 hours then wash the clothing.
5. Use Hairspray: Spray some hairspray on the affected spot and the stain should come right off. Repeat if necessary.
6. Use nail polish remover: Take a cotton ball and wipe the affected area with the remover then rinse it in the washer.
7. Use vinegar: First wet the stain with white vinegar then mix 2 parts vinegar with 3 parts cornstarch. Scrub the paste on the stain and let it sit for a few hours before you throw it into the washer.
8. Sandpaper: If you get stains on your suede clothing or shoes, try to remove it using sandpaper. Scrub the stain lightly to avoid damaging the suede.
