Try scrubbing your hands with white toothpaste and a nail brush. Works for me.
Try hairspray, rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer.

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
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
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.
I had great luck with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It worked when nothing else would.
I've found that hand sanitizer works to remove ink from pretty much anywhere!

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)
