Whether you have a toddler who used the wall as a canvas or you accidentally get ink on the wall, you will want to clean it off. There are several different methods that you can use to remove ink, and one of them will work best for you. Continue reading to learn four ways to remove ink from your walls.

  1. Rubbing Alcohol

One of the best ways to remove ink from the walls is with rubbing alcohol. You need rubbing alcohol and a damp cloth for this process, and it is pretty effective. Start by dampening the cloth with warm water. Squeeze it out so that it isn’t dripping, and then put rubbing alcohol on one end.

Use your finger under the cloth to lightly rub the area with the ink until it is removed. You can dab on the ink stain until it is gone. This process will also remove magic markers and other types of stains from the walls.

  1. Baking Soda and Water

Another great method for removing ink from the walls is to use baking soda and water. For this method, you need baking soda, water, a small bucket or bowl, and a cloth. Start by mixing the baking soda and water. You should have two portions of water for every one portion of baking soda. This will dilute it enough to clean the ink off the wall.

It should form a paste, and you can take your damp cloth and gently rub the mixture onto the wall. Don’t rub hard because baking soda can remove the color from the area if you aren’t too careful.

  1. Mixture of Ammonia, Lemon Juice, and Detergent

This mixture of ammonia, lemon juice, and detergent will remove ink from the walls. Start by getting a small bucket or a bowl, and mix them together in a 1:1:2 ratio. Detergent will be two parts mixed with one part ammonia and one part lemon juice.

Once you mix them, pour the ingredients into a spray bottle. You can spray it on the ink, and use a damp cloth to pat the area dry and remove the ink from the wall. This is a great solution that helps you get your wall ink-free.

  1. Magic Eraser

Your grocery store will carry magic erasers in the cleaning products aisle. They are made by a few different companies. They are a sponge-like product that is designed to remove ink and other stains from the walls or furniture. You can take one of these magic erasers and rub it back and forth over the stain until it is gone.

Final Words

Most of the time, one of these methods will help you remove ink and other stains from your walls. You can choose the one that is most convenient for you, considering the supplies that you already have on hand. Make sure that you don’t press too hard because you can damage the wall or remove the color. If you aren’t able to remove the ink, you can always repaint the wall.
