To remove ink stains from your upholstery, follow this method. First, do not rub the stain. You need to carefully blot the stain to remove as much of the ink as possible from the fabric. Then, apply hairspray to the stain using a white terry cloth. Blot it on and then blot it off again to remove the stain.
When you purchase store bought chemicals for upholstery cleaning, follow the directions provided on them. There is a rule of thumb to consider. Remember that too much chemical cleaning and too much cleaning products can actually worsen the look of your upholstery. It can even make the stain impossible to clean up fully.
