  • I know on a rug not sure on a shirt. Sprinkle a teaspoon of cream of tartar on the stain, follow w/a few drops of lemon juice.. Rub the two into the stain, and then brush the powder away. Rinse immediately w/warm water. Repeat as necessary until the ink has vanished.

  • I"ve gotten sharpie ink off my pants with a liberal application of rubbing alcohol. I blotted with a clean white rag until the ink was all in the rag & none on the pants.
