Nothing can send shivers up your spine more than the discovery red ink or dye stains on clothing, carpet or couches! There is nothing guaranteed to remove red ink, but there are several things you can try that just might work.
Rub dish detergent on the stain and then pour boiling water over it. If this does not work, try salt and bar soap. Another possible method is rubbing hydrogen peroxide on the stain. Some folks use hair spray to remove red dye, while others use milk. Surprisingly, plain rubbing alcohol has also been known to remove red dyes.
