Tips on How to Remove
INK

We sell several professional strength spot & stain removers. These cleaning chemicals will help remove many spots and stains from most carpet types. Look below or check out our "Bottled Chemicals" section by clicking here.

TIPS ON HOW TO REMOVE INK STAINS AND CLEAN INK SPOTS: Ink uses moisture, in this case, ink; as a vehicle to spread. It must be properly handled and cleaned. Always use caution and remember these helpful tips:

1) Be sure, as you clean, to work from the outside of the stain towards the center. Keep it as dry as possible in order to prevent the stain from spreading.

2) You should use an absorbent substance such as corn meal or cornstarch to absorb the ink and the solvent as you clean. Keep removing the stained absorbent substance and apply more until no more ink is absorbed. This will help prevent the ink from spreading and thus causing a much larger problem.

3) Mix some of the absorbent substance with water (or half water and half alcohol) to form a paste and put it on the stain. Allow the paste to dry, then brush it off. Repeat a number of times if necessary.

4) Finally, much success has been found by using hair-spray on such stains. But you still must follow the WARNING guidelines below as you proceed.

BALLPOINT: Since some types will wash out, while others will be set by washing, test first by making a mark on a similar material in an inconspicuous area. If the stain will not wash out of your sample, you will need to use something containing an acetone, amyl acetate, or ammonia. Sponge the stain repeatedly. For a stubborn stain, apply the solvent, thn water, then a bleach. Repeat as many times as necessary. Return to Spot Removal Guide


*NOTE: Some products like hydrogen peroxide, or alcohol can actually bleach or change the color in some fabrics. Read the WARNING notice below and proceed with caution whenever you use such products.

 WARNING: Before making any attempts to remove spots, always test fabric for colorfastness first by applying a small amount of the cleaning solution or chemical on a hidden or unnoticeable area. The tips listed here are NOT guaranteed to work in every case and may have a negative affect. When using any chemical or liquid on fabric you should PROCEED WITH CAUTION. If you are unsure as to how your carpet or upholstery might be affected you should call a professional cleaning technician in your area.
