If you find yourself staring at an ink stain on your favorite pair of jeans, this article will show you how to remove ink stains from jeans.

To remove ink stains from jeans, you will need:

  • Wet Wipes
  • Can of Aerosol Hairspray
  • White Cotton or Terry Cloth Rag
  • Small Soft Toothbrush
  • Liquid Laundry Detergent

Immediately upon noticing the  ink stain on the jeans begin treatment. This will prevent the stain from"setting" and it will make removal easier.

  1. If you are not at home take several wet wipes and attempt to remove the stain. If you can still see the ink stain move on to step 2.
  2. Spray the entire area of the ink stain with hairspray. Don't over saturate the stain. You can apply more if needed.
  3. Blot the ink spot with the white cloth. The ink should start to dissolve and come out onto the white rag.
  4. Keep repeating steps 2 and 3 until the ink stain has disappeared from your jeans. Once you are satisfied with the results allow the area to dry completely.

  6. Using the toothbrush work the liquid detergent into the stained area using small circular motions.
  7. Toss the jeans into the laundry and wash normally. You may either tumble dry or hang outside on the line according to your personal preference.
