hair spray takes out ink on clothing, why not hands?
I was thinking the same thing.

Avon skin so soft. Take a lot of things off. Excellent for pine tar. Also at school I use hand sanitizer to get it off of desks. It might work on hands. I also used it to get ink out of clothing.

Try diging your hands in the earth, it might work like sand paper. the rest might come off when you wash the dirt off. Try some baby oil or vaseline, then put some powder on your hands and rub, see if the oil has loosened the ink and the powder soaked it up. then wash with soapy water one more time. Good luck, let me know what works. What can it hurt.

When my hands get stained from food handling such as peeling loads of carrots/beets I make sure to do lots of dishwashing by hand and finish up by scrubbing my nails and skin with a scrubby and brush. Cuticle remover helps to strip off a layer of dead skin, so that helps get rid of some of the stain along with it. Just rub on a generous amount and let it sit for a 1-3 minutes, then scrub off.

How about Oxyclean. Put a scoop in the sink, add warm water and swish your hands in it. I've used that when my fingernails are really imbedded with dirt from the garden and it worked great.

How about Murphy's Oil Soap?
I had a Lone Star in our camper and it leaked from all our rain and the colors in the aqua, and red fabric bled and got into the white, with a bit of soaking it turned out perfectly clean and no more bleeding of colors. And though it is called "murphy's oil soap" itdoes not mean their is oil in it...
