How do I get ink cartridge ink off my hands?

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
I used Milton! Worked a treat :-)
Try hairspray, rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer.
Try scrubbing your hands with white toothpaste and a nail brush. Works for me.
I got a lot of black printer ink on my hands. The only household cleaner that removed it was Shout Stain Remover. It removed the ink completely with 3 applications.

Lava soap and/or cleanser like Comet worked for me.
I use hand sanitizer to take out ink. The alchol in the sanitizer is what does the trick.
Baby wipes are another item that removes almost anything. Just scrub down with a baby wipe and you are as good as new. I use them all the time in crafting. I really think they are great.
I tried several different chemicals/solutions & soaps to remove aftermarket blue canon ink from my hands, they all did nothing. I googled how do you remove it, and I was directed to your site. I read several of the solutions and most were what I had already tried with absolutely no success. Then I read the bleach one which I had never tried before. The bleach one is immediate and in less than 2 or 3 minutes there was absolutely no dye at all left on my hands, they were spotless. I was amazed that it worked so quickly. I then finished washing up with soap & water to get rid of the bleach residue.
Editor's Note: Bleach should be diluted before using on the skin.
