    Default Rub out ink stains

    I dont know if this works but it just got sent to me so I thought I would pass it on. I always prefer to use natural remedies rather than chemicals and I know a lot of other grapes do to.

    Ink stains can spoil clothes - but you can remove them without using chemical detergents. Soak stains with a little milk or rub half a cut tomato on the affected area. Then rinse thoroughly before washing as normal.

    I can vouch for Milk to remove Ink, also Salt. Just pour salt over it and let it soak it all out. You may need to tip it off and re-apply to get it all out. But it works.

    What about printer ink on a cream carpet? I've tried everything and can't get it out - any ideas please?
