Ink stains --- oh no!!!

If you are a parent this scenario has most likely happened to you. Then, you are left wondering what to do to get out that ink stain?

I found a suggestion for this problem from Danielle at Our Own Little Nest interesting. She uses milk to get out ink stains. ***Update - she has since shut down her blog.***

I haven't done this myself, so I cannot vouch for it, but the pictures on her blog post sure make it look like it works.

I have always tried to use rubbing alcohol to remove ink stains myself, which works pretty well, at least most of the time.

I am always looking for more tips on how get out laundry stains. So what are some of your favorites tips?
