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)

Removing Ink From Your Hands

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)
