Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to remove an ink stain from a piece of fabric that you may have at your house, whether it be a shirt, a towel, anything like that. First of all, you want to get a teaspoon of borax, which I've already measured out in this cup. Next you want a teaspoon of lemon juice. Then a tablespoon of milk. And, a tablespoon of white distilled vinegar. Mix that up a little bit, you want to make sure that your fabric is placed on several layers of paper towels and you want to dump the mixture onto the fabric, let it sit for several hours, maybe even overnight if necessary, and then just throw it in the wash as usual. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that's how you remove ink from fabric.
