Today’s cheap trick comes from reader Michelle T.
She writes, “Most of us use hand sanitizer to be as germ-free as we can, but did you know that you can use it to remove ink from your hands? Try it!”
As you can see from my Minnesota-chapped hands in the photos above, it works! I used a little bit of Purell Hand Sanitizer, and with a little bit of rubbing, it took the ink right off my hand.
My guess is that it is the alcohol in the hand sanitizer that removes the ink. I like this method better than using alcohol because you get the added benefit of killing germs, too!
