It can happen to everyone, especially to students. Don’t give up hand writing yet, there is an easy and smart way to clean this kind of stain. 

Ink spots look like the most difficult to clean. They can’t pass unnoticed because of their dark blue colour. Follow the advice of cleaners South Bank and you will be able to solve this problem.

First thing to do is to make sure your stained piece of clothing is washable. Read and trust the labels. A quick action will prevent permanent damages. Deal with the stain as soon as possible, otherwise you risk giving it enough time to set in and become non-washable.

All you need to clean an ink stain is warm water and ammonia. Make a mixture of those two ingredients in a ventilated area, soak the stain and live it for a half an hour. Rinse afterwards.

Don’t worry if the spot is still noticeable. There are other things you can do, like using white vinegar. Soak the stain for an hour, rinse the garment and leave it dry natural. If this doesn’t help either, use rubbing alcohol. Don’t forget to dilute it first and test on a hidden spot. Use a pad to rub on it and rinse well, when the stain loosens.

There is a way to clean an ink stain, even if your piece of clothing is non-washable. Make a mixture of warm water, ammonia and dish washing detergent and apply it onto the stain with an  eye dropper. Leave it for about 30 minutes and rinse it afterwards.
