Most of us are familiar with the old trick about applying hairspray to remove an ink stain. While this hack actually worked in the past, it probably won’t when you try it today, because many modern hairspray products use less alcohol than those in years past, or are alcohol-free. So when your ballpoint pen creates a stain, what household item can you use instead? Reach for rubbing alcohol. Simply saturate the stain and let it sit for about 15 minutes; the stain will magically disappear. Use an eye dropper for targeting smaller stains!
