How to Remove Stubborn Indelible Ink with these 7 Home Products

Be gone, indelible ink.

No matter which party you voted for in the recent GE14, we can all agree that we did our part as Malaysians to vote for a better and brighter nation. So, be proud of yourself for exercising your right as a free citizen living in a democratic nation.

Unfortunately, it comes with a price: indelible ink on our fingers. It is so lasting to the point that some netizens have even resorted to removing the ink by using Clorox which is inadvisable as it’ll harm your skin. Fortunately, we have compiled a list of the best products to remove the indelible ink, bleach-free!

Depilatory cream
Check VEET Hair Removal Cream price below:

Overview

You thought VEET is only good for removing hair on your legs? Well, you’re wrong; they’re also great at making ink vanish. Not only that, the cream formula is made for sensitive skin with added vitamins and aloe vera so it’s good for rehydration as well!

How to use

Start by coating your finger with lots and lots of VEET Hair Removal Cream. After you’re done making a mess out of your finger, wait for 5 minutes and then rinse with water – that’ll do the trick! 

Cleaning Foam Block
Nano Magic Sponge Eraser
Check Nano Magic Sponge Eraser price below:

Overview

The Cleaning Block Foam Magic Sponge Eraser is one of the best sponges you can use to remove tough stains including the one that is currently on your finger. Moreover, this sponge can be cut into any size or shape, and it can be used to clean many different things as well.

How to use

Simply soak the sponge, squeeze excess water and scrub away the indelible ink from your finger gently. Be sure to use soap and while you’re at it, and then rinse your finger with water as well afterwards. 

Glo Active Foam Liquid Lime
Check Glo Active Foam Liquid Lime price below:

Overview

As Malaysians, we can attest to the effectiveness of this dishwashing liquid in making sure that our dishes are squeaky clean. But did you know that you can also use it to make the indelible ink disappear away from sight? 

How to use

Just apply a few drops onto your finger, scrub it with a sponge, and rinse the ink away with lukewarm water. 

Check Colgate Optic White Exfoliating Mineral Toothpaste price below:

Overview

Besides brushing your teeth with toothpaste, you can also use it to get rid of stubborn indelible ink. After all, they are meant to lessen the staining effect. For this purpose, we recommend the Colgate Optic White Toothpaste. 

How to use

Dampen your finger, squeeze out a generous amount of the toothpaste, use a cloth to rub it all over, let it sit for a minute or so, rinse with water and voila - an ink-free finger!

Check Silkygirl QuikClean Nail Polish Remover price below:

Overview

Acetone does not only remove nail polish and varnish; it can also help dissolve ink on your finger, fingers-crossed (pun intended). 

In most scenarios, acetone is effective in removing ink stains but too much can irritate the skin. Therefore, we suggest to use a product such as nail polish remover since the formula is made to be gentler on the skin!

How to use

Pour a bit of it into a cotton swab, rub it on the ink, rinse and repeat until the ink is gone. Friendly advice: Do use a moisturiser after you're done! 

Biocare Instant Hand Sanitizer
Check Biocare Instant Hand Sanitizer price below:

Overview

Keep your hands free from germs and ink with Biocare Instant Hand Sanitizer. This hand sanitizer contains a fair amount of alcohol which might just erase the ink away.

How to use

Apply to the ink-stained finger and rub it in a circular motion for 30 seconds (like you would with Dynamo on tough-stained clothes). Then, rinse and repeat until every remnant of the ink is erased. 

Bear in mind that those with sensitive skin might want to approach this method with caution as it can most definitely irritate some people’s skin.

Schwarzkopf Osis+ Hairspray
Check Schwarzkopf Osis+ Hairspray price below:

Overview

Besides holding your hair in place, this hairspray also removes the ink from your finger. You must be wondering how, at this point, but trust us on this one. The alcohol in this hairspray is the culprit as it makes the ink fade by slowly dissolving it. 

How to use it

Spray it onto the affected area of the finger, rub the ink-stained area with a cloth, wait for the ink to dissolve and lastly, wash it all away with tepid water.
