How Do You Get Biro Ink Out of Clothes?

To get rid of Biro ink stains from your clothes, lay the stained garment on a towel, apply a small amount of liquid detergent to the stain, allow it to sit for a couple of minutes, and then rinse the garment with water at the temperature recommended for the fabric. The process takes less than 30 minutes.

  1. Lay the stained cloth on a clean surface

    Place a clean, dry towel on a flat surface (preferably an ironing board), then lay the fabric to be treated on top of it to locate the stain. Read the care instructions to determine the recommended water temperature for that fabric. If the fabric does not have any care instructions, use warm water to treat the stain.

  2. Apply laundry detergent

    Apply a small amount of laundry detergent directly onto the stain, allowing it to set for three minutes. Use a clean piece of cotton wool to rub the stain. This process transfers the ink from the stain to the cotton wool. Rinse the area with water.

  3. Wash the cloth and repeat if necessary

    Wash the cloth normally, but make sure the entire stain is gone before drying. Repeat this process if necessary. Wash multiple stained items separately.
