Tuesday's Tip

Given all of my inky play, I find I have very inky fingers! Some inks tend to have more staying power on my hands than others.  I find that using a barrier cream (when I remember!), such as Invisible Care, makes clean up easier and more efficient. Washing with a pumice or "lava" soap or using Purel will also get fingers/hands fairly clean. Remember that Purel has alcohol and can dry out your skin. After playtime and clean up, use a good hand lotion.

And to add to your list, Magic Eraser from Mr CLean will take out ink stains from your fingers too!

Thanks for the great tips!

oh, that magic eraser really is the coolest, now inky fingers too?

I usually just wait until I wash my hair to get all the stubborn stains out ;-)
