An inky pocket is such a nightmare. How do I get it out? How did this happen? Can I get it out?? Yes! It’s very easy to get ink out of any type of fabric, or even a hard surface like a counter top. All you need is this easy tutorial!
a Cloth (such as a paper towel)
Hairspray (don’t worry about buying a nice brand unless you already have one, the cheapest brands will have just what we need!)
How To Do It:
First you will locate the stain and collect all the supplies. Once everything is rounded up, we can begin!
Simply spray the stain with a good wet blob of hairspray. You will begin seeing the ink get more pigmented, what that means is the stain that had absorbed into the fabric is now getting lifted out. See pictures below for emphasis.
Before the hairspray dries take your towel and rub vigorously (you can also try blotting, but I find that the rubbing back and forth urges the stain to extract more so!) once you have done this for a minute you may notice some lifting, but it’s not entirely removing. This is very usual especially with older stains. But don’t worry, you can still remove it! For the stain pictured it took about 3 repetitions of step one and step two.
Once the stain is fully removed, you can dampen your cloth with warm water so the fabric or counter does not stiffen (or get sticky in the counter’s case) with hairspray. Just rub the wet cloth against the surface and the hairspray will begin to be less stiff. See third picture to the right above for emphasis.
I recommend to wash the garment before wearing it. There will be no signs of hair spray on the darker fabric since we dabbed water to take it out.
I hope this helped your fabric/counter top stain! Please like this post and share it with your friends to see more posts like this one. Thanks for reading!
