Use Cream Of Tartar To Remove Stubborn Ink Stains From Clothing
While ink looks like a difficult stain to remove from clothing, one pantry ingredient will alleviate seemingly permanent ink blemishes: cream of tartar.
Use the pantry staple as a pre-treatment. First, place a hand towel underneath the stain so when you wet the mark it won't accidentally saturate the other side of the clothing.
Squeeze half a lemon into a small bowl, followed by 1 to 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar, depending on the size of the stain. Mix, and then apply directly to the stain.
Leave it on for three hours, then pop it into the washing machine. Once you remove it, the stain should be gone!
Don’t put clothing into the dryer until the stain is gone. It might require another round of pre-treatment, and if you put it in the dryer, the stain will set in.
