Having finished working with paper documents, you may find that there are traces of a ballpoint pen or stamp ink on your hands. To get rid of ink stains, there are a number of products available, including soap, hand brush, pumice stone, wet wipes, and finger-wetting gel.
It is necessary
- - soap;
- - hand brush;
- - pumice;
- - cotton swab;
- - lemon;
- - a tomato;
- - alcohol;
- - gel for wetting the fingers;
- - wet antibacterial wipes for schoolchildren.
The choice of means with which you can wash ink stains off your hands is quite wide. To remove traces of water-soluble ink, apply a small amount of soap to the hand brush and rub over your skin. Rinse off the lather with warm water and dry your hands with a towel.
You can use a piece of pumice stone instead of a brush. This tool is more comfortable to use on the inside of the palm. If ink gets on the hardened areas of the skin, steam your hands by placing them in a container of warm water for ten to fifteen minutes. Rub the pumice stone over the ink stain.
A good result can be achieved by using fresh lemon or tomato juice. Cut open a tomato or lemon and squeeze a small amount of juice onto a cotton ball. Wipe the skin where ink gets on it. Rinse off remaining juice with water.
To remove traces of alcohol-soluble ink, as you might guess, a cotton or gauze swab moistened with alcohol is suitable.
After removing ink with a brush, pumice stone, juice, or rubbing alcohol, apply hand cream to your hands. This will help you get rid of the discomfort caused by dry skin.
If you get your hands dirty while in the office, you may find that squeezing lemons or steaming your skin in a bath may not be very convenient. In this case, the finger wetting gel, which is used when working with a large number of paper documents, will help to solve the problem. Run a dry paper towel several times over the surface of the gel and wipe the contaminated area of the skin with this cloth. Use a clean cloth or paper to wipe off any remaining gel from your hands.
In environments where home hand cleaners are not available, a damp antibacterial school wipe can help wipe away ink marks. Open the package and wipe the stains with a tissue. Once you've removed any dirty marks, close the package tightly to prevent the tissues from drying out before you need them the next time.
