Getting Ink Stains Out of Clothing Method 3: Milk
What you will need:
- A bowl
This method of removing ink stains from clothing can help you remove the most stubborn stains. Milk contains enzymes and proteins that can help break down the ink stains. For this reason this method of removing ink stains is very simple.
- To begin you will need to get a bowl big enough to soak the part of the garment that is stained.
- Place the stained portion of the garment in the bowl or bucket. Ensure only the stained part is in the bowl or bucket.
- Next, pour the milk into the bowel or bucket so that the milk completely covers the stain.
- Allow the garment to soak until the milk becomes discolored with the ink stain.
- To ensure you have removed all of the ink you can pour the discolored milk in the sink and replace it with fresh milk.
- You can continue to repeat this processes until the milk no longer changes color.
- Launder the garment as you normally would. If you have a rather large or stubborn ink stain you may want to launder the clothing by itself to ensure you do not stain any of your other clothes.
- Inspect the ink stained area. If the stain remains you can repeat any one of the methods mentioned above. If the stain has been removed you can dry your garment. Remember do not dry the clothing if the stain remains because the heat will set the ink stain into the fabric causing it to be much more difficult, if not impossible to, remove the stain
