Ballpoint Ink. Tips to remove Ballpoint Ink stains on upholstery
If you have a ball point ink stain on your upholstery, wet the stain with a cotton ball that is wet with alcohol. Dab at the stain until you can~ez_rsquo~t bring out any more of the ink from the upholstery.
Apply a few drops of dry cleaning fluid to the ball point ink stain. Blot off the excess moisture bringing out the stain with the dry cleaning fluid. Repeat with a clean towel as long as you are bringing out more of the ball point ink stain.
Make a mixture of water and a few drops of a clear, bleach free detergent and spray over the ink stained area. Blot and dab to bring out the moisture. Try not to rub the upholstery so you don~ez_rsquo~t stretch out the upholstery too much. Repeat as long as you see more of the ball point ink coming out of the upholstery.
Rinse with a spray of clear water. Blot and dab the stained area with a clean towel to bring out the moisture and any remaining suds.
Rinse your upholstery one last time using a half and half mixture of vinegar and water. Blot and dab with a clean towel to bring out moisture and any remaining ink. Repeat as needed for stain free upholstery.
