Ink Pigment is comprised of carbon. Ethyl Alcohol contains a 1 (hydrophilic) molecule that craves water and another that craves organic material. To remove carbon particles, carbon molecules need to bind with a surfactant such as ethyl alcohol. The alcohol will bind itself to both water and the organic material or in this case, INK.
