Cleaning Ink Stains

Yesterday I was attempting to replace the black ink cartridge on my printer, but the damn seal on the new cartridge wouldn't come off. I turned the cartridge upside down to break the seal, and it worked... but sure enough, some ink spilled through the upper air vent. Damn @#~$%&/!! generic cartridges...

As a result, I have a quite large black stain on my hand, and attempts to remove it have been unsuccessful. What do you suggest?

Pretend it's a cool, Madonna-style henna tatoo until it wears off.

Really? I've heard Cornish patented its use as an exfoliating product, but I wasn't aware of its cleansing properties.

Yeah, silly me, pretending to get some useful advice on a.net...  no  Either way, it's already wearing off... *shrug*

Get some white spirit, and wash your hands with it, then afterwards wash them again with a good soap to get rid of the leftover spirit and smell. That should shift the ink nicely, certainly did when I used black enamel as eyeliner for Halloween!

Ah, on the palm ? In that case, tell everyone you have been cursed by pirates, and that their ghostly souls will be arriving shortly to cut out your liver.

Only for Halloween ? I have my doubts...

According to the HP website, they have 3 recommendations:

1. Do not use HOT water on your hands, it 'sets' the stain.

2. Use a gritty soap (such as Lava or Ajax) and scrub, scrub scrub.

3. For best results, do the above within 2 minutes of getting the stains.

Well ok, I can't argue that one, but normally I use proper make-up, not paint Wink I was given 5 mins to get ready, so improvisation was key!

I don't use anything - my natural beauty and fabulousness shines through ! As for enabling death, I prefer something with a little more flair, like flinging myself into a volcano.

from my own experience, printer ink stains are horribly difficult, if not impossible to remove. You will be stuck with it for a while, although frequent hand washing can get it out faster.

I'd stick with JGPH1A's madonna tatoo idea.



Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

No Andy, that's still your gig. The vengeful volcano deity is not going to accept a fellow deity as sacrifice. It has to be a humble bald old bathbun, as clearly stipulated in the Eddic scriptures.

"And there shall come, bewheel-ed still
Up Hekla's fiery, vengeful slope
Bald Bjathboen, sent by Althing's will
As sacrificial misanthrope".

Can't argue with scripture !

That's true - for example, what does "Project manager for company-wide mid-morning nutritional avena-carbohydrate supplements to accompany super-heated caffeine-laced hydration media" actually mean ?

Cornish doesn't need beans. He snorts lemon-scented scouring powder.
