Ever wondered how to get ink stains out of clothes?  Here's a quick tip on an easy way to remove them!My girls love art and end up with marks all over their clothing. One of the harder stains to get out was ink until I learned this trick! You can use hairspray to remove ink from clothing.

I’ve found that pretty much any hairspray will work. You just spray it onto the mark and use a cloth to rub the stain out.

After the stain has been removed, launder the item as usual. I was amazed at how quick and easy it was!

For more exciting stain removal, you can see how to easily remove oil stains here.

      Hairspray works great on ink stains, unless you accidentally wash and dry the stain in!! Then… Goo Gone works great! my husband’s work pants were covered in little ink marks and the GG took it right out! Also works great on getting Vicks VapoRub out of sheets/clothes!

        Thank you! I was just going to ask that! I have an ink stained that was washed in and the hairspray trick didn’t work and was wondering if anything else did. Can’t wait to try it!

      When I was about 13, my mother had surgery and was in the hospital for a week or so. My dad worn a dress shirt every day when he sat with her. I washed a whole load of his dress shirts with an ink pen and I didn’t even notice until I took them out of the dryer. Lucky for me, I knew about the hairspray trick. I think I used a whole can but it took all the ink out and I never told anyone until a long time later. It was a great feeling to see that ink start to run.

      Rubbing alcohol works great too!

      Does anybody know how to get dry erase marker out of clothes? I tried to find something on Pinterest but came up with nothing.

      • Hey there! I have heard using a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol works. I’ve never done it personally, but it’s worth a try.

      • We got some on our clothes and it actually didn’t come out completely with the alcohol. :-( The hairspray definitely didn’t do anything. The alcohol maybe dulled it, but it did not go away.

      What about for non-washable markers that have been washed and dried in clothes? Alcohol does not work.
