Don’t you hate it when you accidentally stain that crisp white shirt with ink? It could be a pen leak or your nephew or niece just made use of your favourite shirt as their canvas… we’ve all been at the receiving end of this disaster. And yes, it is difficult to get rid of those stubborn stains from your shirt. But fret not, WODROB’s got just the right hack on how to salvage your shirt. With only one magic ingredient, you can revive this clothing in a jiffy. How? Behold the good old hairspray!
Yes, you read that right. The hairspray not only helps you style your tresses but has multiple uses. The alcohol content in it works pretty well to erase ink stains.
Try out this technique by following a couple of steps. Spritz a little hairspray on an old cloth or towel. Pour a nominal amount of water on the stain and allow the shirt to soak some of it. Gently press the towel that you’ve sprayed hairspray on against the stain. Remember not to rub it as it might smudge the stain. If you tackle the ink as soon as it has stained the shirt, you’re more likely to do away with the blotch. The next time you have ink stains on your clothing, don’t throw that outfit in the bin. Instead, try this easy and doable trick to get rid of the blotch almost instantly, without ruining your shirt.
