basket with dirty laundryMy oldest daughter was a great little artist. She loved to draw with markers and crayons, and whenever she could get her little paws on an ink pen, she would get artistic and draw not only on the paper, but all over her body and any clothing she had on.

Ink stains no longer have to be difficult to remove from your precious clothing, thanks to an awesome article that I found on The author gives us 10 ink stain remover methods for your laundry. Along with great tips to follow before you remove the stain, such as testing in an inconspicuous place first so that you don't ruin the fabric, there are 10 ink stain removers that should remove any ink stain from your stained laundry.

  1. Vinegar, milk, borax and lemon juice mixed together
  2. Hairspray
  3. Fingernail polish remover
  4. Plain paste toothpaste
  5. Isopropyl rubbing alcohol
  6. Regular white vinegar
  7. WD-40
  8. Shaving cream
  9. Ivory bar soap
  10. Buttermilk
I know that hairspray works, though it can be a long and tedious process. Honestly, the only methods that I have tried are the hairspray and the rubbing alcohol. I will have to try the other methods on my youngest daughter's clothing, as she seems to be as artistic as her big sister.
