Make sure fabric is bleachable before washing with chlorine bleach.waschmaschine image by Stefan H?¡èuselmann from Fotolia.com
Throw the clothing in the washing machine with the recommended amount of laundry detergent and chlorine bleach. Keep in mind that the clothing must be bleachable to carry out this step. Using chlorine bleach on non-bleachable clothing will further damage the fabric. Wash with hot water, then dry as normal. If the stain is still visible, move to Step 2.
Use a sponge to remove ink stains with rubbing alcohol.sponge for cleaning image by Serghei Velusceac from Fotolia.com
Pour rubbing alcohol onto a sponge then press lightly and rapidly on the stain. Use the sponge to rub detergent directly into the stain then rinse the area with warm water. Move on to the next step if the stain is still apparent.
Glycerin is a common element found in soap.natural soaps 3 image by samantha grandy from Fotolia.com
Fill the sink with a mixture of hot water and a small amount of detergent. Mix in enough detergent so that the water is sudsy. Soak a washcloth in the sudsy water, then wring out until it is nearly dry. Pour a small amount of glycerin, which can be found in most drugstores, onto the cloth. Rub the glycerin directly into the ink stain, let it sit for a few minutes then continue rubbing into the stain. Do this a few times. Rinse the stain with warm water. If the area is still ink-splotched, move to Step 4.
Hairspray can also be used to remove ink stains.girl with hair spray image by Dmitri MIkitenko from Fotolia.com
Saturate the stain with hairspray containing alcohol, then turn the clothing inside out. Place paper towels underneath the stain on a flat surface. The paper towels are used to absorb the stain. Brush the backside of the stain with a lint-free cloth, working from the outside edges of the stain to the middle. Repeat this process while regularly changing the paper towels beneath the stain. Rinse the clothing when complete.
