Default Inky Fingers

Ok...I'm messy. I've been stamping for awhile and always end of with inky fingers. Usually I don't really care if I walk around the house for the day with the stains on my hands, but if I am on my way out (like to deliver a card at a party) I want to get the ink off quickly. Does anyone have any special concotions, tips or products suggestions that will get rid of my inky fingers?

Thanks!

Oh. I would like to know too. My hands get terribly messy - especially if I use my black ink. I just looked at my hands. They were inky before I had a shower. Now they are clean. I wonder if my shampoo cleaned them? I'll have to do more studies on that.

I once had ink all over my hands and I sprayed them with the cleaner that you use to clean your stamps with and it worked like a charm.

I use a pumice scrub to get rid of ink quickly. I find mine hanging around in men's garages. It works great and smells like oranges! If you want your own you can get it at hardware stores and also stores that sell car oil and things like that.

Default inky fingers

I have always found that my regular baby wipes work for me.
I once tryed to get my sons handprint useing a stamp pad and I had to use bleach (a VERY small amount since he was so tiny, I didn't want to hurt him) and that worked.

I find most ink washes off with a good scrub but if it won't come off and I'm in a hurry I dip a q-tip in some nailpolish remover and use that to take off the residual ink.

I tend to be very messy with my Ink pad's and half the time end up sporting Ink spot's on my Hand's and wrist's. After trying to scrub them with soap and water I turned to my stamp cleaner and it did the trick!!
