How to removing ink from fabric

This method is magic! If you are a cleaning nut like me you will want to try it out just to prove to yourself it works.

I tried it the first time only half believing it would work. I was so surprised I did the experiment twice.

So if you have accidentally put some ink onto fabric, try this solution.

Note: the longer you leave the mark the harder it will be to remove so act quickly.


  • 1 cup Milk
  • Fresh lemon
  • Saucepan
  • Fine sieve

Heat the milk over low heat and squeeze in the juice of one lemon.

The lemon juice will curdle the milk right away. Give the mixture a quick stir and pour everything through a fine sieve. Keeping the clumpy mixture called the curds. Place this mixture over the mark on the fabric. Then allow the curds to draw the ink away.

To finish cleaning, follow the instructions on the fabric or garment. If you cannot remove the item from furniture, scrape the curds away with the back of a knife and gently clean in place with a soft, damp cloth and some Castiel soap mix then leave to dry.

The stylish, sustainable, and safe way to care for your home without the need for harsh chemicals.
