Removing ink stains from whites and colors
Ink can be one of the most challenging stains to get out of clothes and fabrics, but don’t worry — Clorox is here to help. Whether it is a new stain or a dried, set-in stain, follow the steps below to remove tough stains like ink from both colored and white clothing.
For both colored and white clothing, pour Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster directly onto the ink-stained area and let it sit for 5–10 minutes, making sure not to let it dry. The stain should begin to disappear immediately and the majority of the stain will be gone in the first few minutes.
For larger stains or stains that cover an entire piece of clothing or fabric, soak the ink-stained areas in 1 quart of water mixed with 1 full cup of Clorox 2® for up to 60 minutes. Stains will begin to disappear for both new and set-in stains.
For colored clothing and fabrics, set your washer to the hottest recommended water setting and add both detergent and Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster into the laundry basin or detergent dispensing tray. Clorox 2® helps remove stains and odors through the wash while making both colored and white clothing brighter and cleaner. Always be sure to follow the instructions on your garment’s care label.
For white clothing and fabrics, set your washer to the hottest recommended water setting and add both detergent and Clorox® Regular Bleach2 with CLOROMAX®. Always be sure to follow the instructions on your garment’s care label.
Carefully inspect to confirm the stain is gone before machine drying.
