Many Blesssings! I had cartridge ink on my hands. I tried rubbing alcohol it didn't work. Bleach took it off instantly. Make sure you dilute and wash hands afterwards. Thanks again. 9/1/08

Jackie, Thank you so much for your suggestion to use bleach. It worked GREAT!! I had tried several other things but none worked. Your idea was wonderful. Thank you

I used a Clorox disinfectant wipe, and it came off instantly as well. It must be the bleach...

Try hairspray, rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer.

Try scrubbing your hands with white toothpaste and a nail brush. Works for me.

I've found that hand sanitizer works to remove ink from pretty much anywhere!

I had great luck with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It worked when nothing else would.

I tried the hand sanitizer, nail polish remover, but the thing that worked the best was the full strength bleach on dry hands. Rubbed it in and voila it was gone. Wash your hand thoroughly and lotion after words.

Bleach is the best! tried hand sanitizer (no luck), polish remover (no luck), then read the bleach comment and as noted. Voila! Don't waste your time, grab the bottle of bleach from your laundry and do the damn thing

Removing a supposedly empty inkjet cartridge, I got black ink on my hand and down my bare leg to my feet. After reading about quite a few cleaning techniques, I tried my favorite sink and bathroom cleaner, Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser (26 oz liquid in gold bottle - be SURE to SHAKE IT!). I applied it using a surgeon's scrub brush (Anchor Cub Scrub), the best brush I've ever found ... small and perfect stiffness and lasts forever. The ink came off like it was just dirt.

How do you remove ink from skin?

Hair spray supposedly takes off ballpoint pen ink. Full-strength bleach takes off computer printer ink quickly. Wash your hands thoroughly after using the bleach and use lots of hand lotion to restore the moisture. (04/29/2008)

Depending upon how much and if it is in patches (like a pen bursting on one area of your skin, or like stripes), I say hand sanitizer works wonders. I sometimes write things on my hand when I am not near any paper, and the sanitizer gets it off straight away. I have heard Lava soap works, GOOP (and its cousins) also work. Just be sure if you have sensitive skin that you test on a small area first.

Also, what kind of ink? India ink (like calligraphy ink) or ball point ink, etc. Also, Hints From Heloise may help, too. Sometimes she has tips that are really great. The ladies from "How Clean Is Your House" usually give non chemical alternatives, too. (Those houses are disgusting, but the women are a hoot and smart. They offer not only chem free ideas, but if you have asthma or other health problems, they are good for ideas). Good luck. (04/29/2008)

The rubbing alcohol suggestion worked like a charm. If I had known about this in college, I would have had a lot more fun. Thanks so much. (05/29/2008)

400 grit wet/dry automotive sandpaper (use it wet) works great and you're hands will feel as smooth as a baby's cheek. (02/26/2009)

You can use Rubbing Alcohol, finger nail polish remover, or toner for your face and even hair spray will get it off. :) (03/27/2007)

my hands were covered in ink I tried mineral spririts paint thinner soap then used rubbing alcohol as you suggested the alcohol sort of worked. I was working on another project with mineral oil and noticed the ink coming off my hands! Add this to your list as it did the best job. (04/08/2007)

The product "Oops!" will also work for the most part. (10/22/2007)
