Get rid of an ink stain in 1 minute

You may have heard that hairspray takes out ballpoint ink, but these days the hairsprays we get don’t work as well



Why? The alcohol in the spray used to do the trick, and since it’s drying on the hair, many hair products no longer contain it. So go right to the source and use a cotton-wool ball soaked in rubbing alcohol to blot a mark. (Make sure the fabric’s washable and use a piece of kitchen towel behind the stain to soak up  the alcohol.)
