Face Wipes – You can also use face wipes that includes alcohol as its ingredient. Just simply wipe the affected area to remove the marks. This is also a quick and simple way to remove ink cartridge stains.
Baby Oil – baby oil or olive oil can be used to remove some of the ink but it’s not as affected as the others above, but can help when you have a small amount of ink in your hands.
