Smudging your finger in ink is not ideal, but luckily it's also not permanent. Whether your fingers are stained from a pen, marker, newspaper or even printer ink, there is hope to get it off. Your first thought is likely to wash your hands with basic soap and water; while this may do the trick, more often than not, you’ll need something a bit stronger to get all of the ink off your skin. All it takes is few household items already at your disposal and a drop of patience, and your fingers will be ink-free in no time.
Moisten a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol. Rub the cotton ball over your fingers until no more ink is coming off your skin.
Wash your hands with soap -- particularly one with exfoliator beads -- and rinse with water. Dry your fingers with a towel and inspect for any traces of ink.
Moisten a clean cotton ball with milk. Use the milk and cotton ball to remove the ink. Wash your hands again to see if all the ink is gone.
Moisten another clean cotton ball with nail polish remover for stubborn ink stains. Rub over the ink with the cotton ball until it is gone. Wash your hands well with soap and water.
