I usually don't have nail polish remover at home since I don't wear it and have found that it comes off best with shampoo when I'm washing my hair. Don't know what's so different about it than hand soap, but I notice my hands come out clean after I've showered and washed my hair. : )

I've even found that really gooping on the hand lotion and mooshing it around, then wiping it off with a kleenex does a pretty good job (with the added bonus of soft smooth hands when you're done).

I just use baby wipes. It works pretty well. If that doesn't work hand sanitizer will work and so will Simple Green

I use Kiss-off - it's in stick form and you can also use it to remove ink from just about anything! Even takes off those hard-to-remove colors like red.

Washing your hair works too

Stampendous sells scrubby regtangular thing in the shape of a bar of soap that I've found is the easiest way to get ink off my hands. I was taking a class at my local stamp store and went to the bathroom to get ink off my hands is where I first used this, so I bought one. I keep it in bathroom by my stamp room. Works great but is hard not soft like a sponge so may not be good for tender hands.

I think it also helps if you use lots of lotion on your hands BEFORE you stamp.

What a wealth of information you all have. Thank you so much. I've got lots of new things to try. Baby Wipes never did the trick for me.
