Question Inky Fingers

I tried the rubber cement technique for the first time today, it was a lot of fun. I do not have a brayer yet (on wish list though) so I just used a cosmetic sponge and now I have ink all over my fingers. I was wondering how you get the ink of your fingers. I got most of it off with just soap and warm water but i still have a Brilliant Blue tint to them. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

A waterless hand cleaner like GoJo works pretty good.

A pumice stone always cleans ink off my fingers - and leaves them nice and smooth!

There is a product made by
Gena called Nail Brite. It is a nail whiteing cream used to clean under, over and around your nails. It will remove ANY stain.
Trust me when I say ANY, as I have been coated in tractor grease and horse manure more than once! LOL

You can get it at most beauty supply stores like Sally's. It is something I think every stampers and gardener should have on hand to use!

A friend of mine told me to get an SOS pad and clean.....gently, off the black ink that I had tried EVERYTHING to get off my fingers. I've never used anything else, it works great!!! Shelly

Thanks ladies, for the wonderful idea. I never thought to use the GoJo. I have that on hand so I will try that first.

Default try some lotion

I have good luck, putting lotion on my hands and washing them again. It may take several tries but it works for me!

I have a method that has always worked, but I have no idea why. If I wash and condition my hair my hands will be spotless. I have tried washing my hands just with the shampoo and it does not work. It seems to be running my hands through my hair that does it. Works with any kind of ink I use.

On the other hand, everyone who knows me knows I am an obsessive stampers so I don't have to explain the look!
