Rubber Stamp Station – Ink Experts
The people at Rubber Stamp Station are experts on stamps, and with every stamp comes a supply of ink. There’s always a risk of getting ink on your skin and clothes when you use stamps, so we’ve compiled a healthy guide to help you with removing ink from fabric and skin.
Removing Ink from Fabric
There are a few options open to you when it comes to removing ink from fabric and clothes, depending on the type of fabric and the materials you want to use for removal:
- Most kitchens have white vinegar, which makes the most convenient option a combination of white vinegar and warm water. This is not a great option if the fabric you’ve inked is cotton or linen, however. Mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar with a quart of warm water. Soak the fabric in this solution for an hour, then rinse with warm water.
- Another option open to you requires dishwashing detergent and ammonia. Mix 1 quart of warm water, ½ teaspoon of dishwashing detergent, and 1 tablespoon of ammonia into a solution. Then, soak the fabric in the solution for 30 minutes. Rinse completely with warm water.
- The last option requires rubbing alcohol. Mix rubbing alcohol with warm water in a 1:1 ratio. After you’ve diluted the rubbing alcohol with warm water, use cotton balls (or paper towels) to dab at the stain. You should be able to blot the stain away once it’s loosened. You may need to repeat several times as it’s a more delicate option than soaking the entirety of the fabric. Afterward, rinse with warm water.
Removing Ink from Skin
To remove ink from the skin, blot or rub at the spot with a paper towel soaked in rubbing alcohol. It’s that easy! You can also use soap containing pumice. We recommend Gojo.
