I need the help of all you thinkers out there.....I have stained ink on my fingers from where I refilled my ink cartridge this morning....and I tried using rubbing alcohol to take it off my fingers, but it is still on there. Any tips from you guys on removing inkstains from your skin? Any ideas would be much appreciative before I go to work on Monday.

When I have discolored hands or fingernails, I always put a little clorox in water and dip them in that. It doesn't smell all that good, but it usually always works. If nothing else works, try it.

Also working in the garden-rearranging the tomato plants and weeding the garden helps get rid of ink stains too....by the time I was done that afternoon it was almost gone completely....by the next day you could not even tell.... who knew.

I've read that face moisturizer works pretty well, you should cover your finger in it and let it soak in. Since the moisturizer has a chemical in it that pulls the makeup or oil out of the skin and it replaces it with moisture. Let it set for about 10 minutes. If that doesn't work, dip the rest of your fingers in ink and tell people you had a craving for blueberries.

Dear friend, I have small lemon and yeast could work may be kerosene too. I have not tried but I had heard this keep the lemon cut on ink and rub it and keep it with mixing yeast. May the ink stain may go. All the best.
